You ask that question and you would be wrong. It's not about the bicycle itself, but. I did bought it when I started the project. And it was a big inspiration to me due to the thought putted into it.
To the whole fact that I have this bicycle I should thank someone who did a MA in Arts and Design, and made HIS Final Major Project.
What so exacting about tit is isn't the fact that the person designed a isosceles triangle with wheels, above all it's the fact that the person designing this (Mark Sanders
) outlined a problem (fast and easy commuting) and created the best solution possible based on already well established concept.
Sure, it's not the fastest bike, nor it the most convenient one, but it did the job which it suppose to do (commute for ~20 minutes and then travel with it in metro) better than any other bike.
It was the inspiration to the whole project. Yes I need to design a thing which tells time. But it should tell time in such a novel and interesting fashion to rise above all competition. And sure, it may not be the most precise clock nor the most beautiful one, but the most importunely it should be different. And the design process for Strida
is just gorgeous
