The Dreamers of Dreams…

I have been traipsing around the interweb looking for and at some really amazing bicycle designs.  One blog in particular (bicycledesign) has some truly aweinspiring designs (curvybike).  My biggest problem with these blogs and indeed with the designs I have been seeing is this: They are not real.

These bikes are only being imagined they are not generally, being built en-mass.  Therefore they are utterly useless.  I’m finding these bikes to be extremely specialized.  Commuter bikes, city bikes, folding bikes, road bikes, bikes that replace cars, sport bikes etc.  None of this interests me.

What I’m interested in is action.  I want a bike that could win the Tour de France, revolutionize the cycling industry, and be used just as easily as a commuter bike around the city or to cycle across the country in record time.  Most importantly however, I want it to be built.  Unless this bike is realized and disseminated it is of no use to us.

This doesn’t mean though, that we cannot draw inspiration from the work of our peers we simply need to bring our ideas together and then focus our minds and dedicate ourselves to bringing our vision into reality.
