Evo and The Bike Design Project

Evo Bike

I was excited to see this year's entries to the Bike Design Project, and was particularly impressed by the SF Design team's entry Evo, with it's modular features, pictured in this video from TechCrunch. Although the Denny from the Seattle team ultimately won the competition (it's combo lock/handlebars are the design's highlight), the Evo was still my favorite design of the lot.
