Not many people can say they helped design a bike. I was talking to Twerps! the other night about design in general and how I’m used to designing architecture that’s based in the private sector. For the first time in a while, I’ve worked on the design for something for the public sector. Albeit a rather small percentage of the public, but still!
Drew from Milwaukee Cycles approached me over a year ago to ride for them. Since then, I’ve worked on improvements on their chainring guard and now a bike frame. We have nicknamed it a 700cmx for all intents and purposes. After a 6 month design process, we have a prototype!
DART rider Tony Fast is getting one as well. Expect to see a lot of these bikes in the forthcoming months. We’re all really stoked and it may not look like much to the average person or even the bicycle-friendly person, this bike is designed to take a beating and still be a comfortable urban fixed gear.
I had to match the first frame to my blog colors because, you know, I’m a hipster.- Prolly
