strategic dc10

brake levers

the bike draws inspiration from airplane sub structures, bridges, and industrial materials, the brand name "strategic" is drawn from the fact that this bike is ment mainly to be a tactical tool to get you from point A to point B as conveniently, and quickly as possible; like a commercial airplane would. cars need a place to park, bike need a person to run them and neither fit in a subway tunnel. the whole point of this bike is to connect that disconnect between the bicycle and car and then compound upon the benefits of both, what I like to call parasitic mobility; where one smaller means of transportation can be made compact enough to latch onto a much larger, well-established means of transportation (i.e. subways & buses) to further its range.

more on this later. the bike still needs finishing.
