The Donky Bike is an ingenious city bicycle that can carry easily carry bulky items on front and rear racks (video). The removable racks are mounted on a sturdy square-section beam that runs the length of the bike—that means the weight is held by the frame, not the handlebars (as with front cargo baskets). The frame is compact to keep the footprint small and the low-speed handling agile, even while carrying loads. The Donky Bike was created by British designer Ben Wilson and is now available for purchase online.

Back in 2008, the New York City Department of Transportation installed nine bike racks designed by David Byrne. Each bike rack is meant to represent the neighborhood in which it is installed—the rack on Wall Street is a dollar sign, for instance. The bike racks were originally installed as temporary public art works, but they are now on permanent loan to the City.

The Dutch are at it again with an awesome new bike brand called Moosach Bikes. The marketing duo behind the brand decided to merge good design with a retro feel and Moosach was born. The company set out to make bikes based on vintage, road-style bike frames of the 70s, 80s, and 90s. They refurbish the frames they find and turn them into the new model with brand new parts, so each bike has history and a story to go with it.
