More crowdsourced bikes this Friday (mr and mrs pictured above). I’m a huge fan of this sort of utility bike, perfect for urban environs and built simple – to last. Designed by Elian Veltman from Elian Cycles and they are nearing completion of the first 100 limited editions which will be, in the second week of May, handed out to the early adopters on the Utrecht Central train station.
Through the website www.100minutes.nl bike lovers from around the world have the opportunity to reserve a premium edition Minute. This limited edition of 100 numbered bikes will soon be handed out starting in Utrecht.
According to the founders, the bike is mainly picked up by commuters from Amsterdam, Milan, Barcelona, London and Berlin. Also, to celebrate the first 100 Minutes they will take on a cheerful ride through Utrecht together on those small wheels. At the same time, bikes will be shipped to the funders across Europe who can’t make it to Utrecht. We highly value the feedback from our riders and will continue to collect and use their input to further develop new ultimate editions worldwide and for various cities. Pretty cool! The location of the unboxing party is Station Square West in Utrecht, 2nd week of May, exact date TBA, so check their site here.
