The bikes were part of the ‘Creative Collaborations’ that were new to the event this year. To push bike-making into the design field, Manifest organizers connected veteran, award-winning bike builders with global product design firms to see what they’d come up with.
IDEO and Rock Lobster
Fuse Project and Sycip
Ziba and Signal
The teams put their heads together and came up with some truly ground-breaking bikes. I already gave you an up-close look at one of them, now the Oregon Manifest wants you to pick a winner.
NOTE: At BikePortland, we love your comments. We love them so much that we devote many hours every week to read them and make sure they are productive, inclusive, and supportive (heck, sometimes we even fix your typos!). That doesn't mean you can't disagree with someone. It means you must do it with tact and respect. This is our business and we do not tolerate mean commenters who add nothing of value to the discussion. Unfortunately, we are not robots and we don't always catch everything. You can help by notifying us if you see inappropriate comments. Thanks! — Jonathan and Michael
