Commuter Bicycle Concept
ÉCAL with Scott Bicycle
Thomas Elliott Burns, Lucas Frank & Katarzyna Kempa
Scott Bicycle, who are known for their high end sport bicycles (mountain and road) asked the écal masters class to develop a commuter style bicycle. Their brief asked that we work mostly with integrating ideas and functionality into the frame itself.
Our concept focused on integrating optional storage spaces, like a glove box to a car.
Image three shows all the boxes on the bike, but we imagine people would choose either the front or the back depending on their need.
The containers themselves are made from PET felt, an industrial material most commonly used for the trunk spaces in cars. It is made from recycled PET (water bottles etc) and is waterproof and quite strong.
We also integrated font and rear LED lights into the fork and seat stays.
