A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away Toyota USA contacted me about documenting a project they were working on with Parlee Cycles and DeepLocal. Parlee makes handmade carbon fiber road, track and cross frames in Beverly, Massachusetts. That connection I understood but what does DeepLocal have to do with bikes? Well, as this video showcases, DeepLocal worked with Parlee to develop a bike that would shift with your mind. For the past few months, I’ve been documenting this project on my blog exclusively for Toyota as a part of their ongoing Toyota Prius Projects series. The project is dubbed the PxP and it came together quite nicely.
Knowing that photos weren’t enough, I enrolled the help of my friend Stebs of Paper Fortress to document the last day at Parlee. Here’s his video and you can check out more photos and commentary at my blog, Prolly is Not Probably!- Prolly
