Last October, we had posted about a bike design competition, the “commuter bike for the masses” competition. We wanted to let you know that the winner has been announced. Torkel Dohmer’s ‘This Way’ concept has been chosen as the winning entry.
‘This Way’ by Torkel Dohmers: A pedal powered comfortable bicycle with weather protection.
I have made an emphasis on automotive qualities in the design, to attract non-previous cyclists used to cars and motorcycles.
Another selling point to attract more people riding a bike (especially here in Europe) is weather protection – the bike has a roof!
