Constructed from lightweight carbon fibre and featuring a ‘centre hub’ steering mechanism borrowed from motorcycle technology, the Furia Concept Bicycle, designed by Francesco Manocchio, won this ADI Eccellenze del Design nel Lazio industrial design award.

Unlike the (almost certain to be produced) real thing, this 1:1 scale prototype was 3D printed.

The Budnitz Model E is the lightest electric bike of its kind, combining an enclosed 250W electric motor (feeding a 30V L-ion 160Wh battery) with a titanium alloy frame, it can cruise at 15mph (24km/h) for 100 miles (160km).

Your wallet will be similarly lightened by $3,950 (€3,500).

There have been 139 submissions to the Dublin Inquirer Bicycle Collision Tracker map.

A pattern is emerging.

We’ve found an intersection in Dublin’s city centre that appears to be particularly dangerous for cyclists…There is a discernible cluster of reported incidents in the city centre, and it’s only a stone’s throw from Dublin City Council’s Civic Offices at Wood Quay. Two accidents have been reported at the intersection of Bridge Street and Cook Street, and three more just south of the intersection on Bridge Street Upper before it meets High Street….[details on how it can be improved at link below]
