VILLE

Bronze
2010

Ville is a street bike that answers urban commuter needs.  This bicycle incorporates a folding design that allows for storage in tight areas that are not suitable for standard bikes (such as the office or on a subway).  However, when folded, Ville also doubles as a cart.  The bike then becomes a tool to the user, allowing them to perform tasks such as grocery shopping, which could not be accomplished with a standard bicycle.  This also allows the bicycle to stay with the user, avoiding the need to leave the bike unattended and reducing the risk of theft.
