    ——

    The scope and execution of each of these bikes is pretty impressive. Seems every year the envelope gets pushed further and further as builders/designers try to define/execute the “perfect utility bike.”

    This years bikes are PACKED with tech, integrated EVERYTHING. Now don’t get me wrong, I’m part of the iPod/internet generation and I love me some bells and whistles…but do you really want to have to take your BIKE to the genius bar every time your right turn signal stops working? 

    Part of the beauty of a bike (particularly for daily transport) is how RELIABLE the thing is. Its a simple machine that performs a simple function: transportation of you and your crap. To throw a bunch of techno-wizardry into the mix for the sake of “utility” seems like it has the strong potential to undermine the bicycle’s simplicity and in-turn, its reliability.

    Not to mention, at the end of the day it needs to be a bike that is FUN TO RIDE, not some overbuilt, heavy clunker that handles like a shopping cart.

    For all these reasons and more my vote goes to the MNML + Method “Blackline” bike outta Chi-Town. They blended just the right amount of functional tech with a simple/low-maintenance drivetrain and solid rack system.

    That said, I really have to congratulate everyone involved with this project, each bike is truly something special.

  14. rosko-cc:

    Ezra Caldwell died on May 24th 2014. He was an amazing guy and a good friend. A true example of courageous living. His legacy of inspiration will carry for a long time. Take a moment to reflect on a life well lived and perhaps carry home some drive to seize the moment- for those who no longer have that option. Godspeed brother.

    Couldn’t have said it better Seth. RIP Fast Boy, you live on in all of us.
