99 Innovative Bike Designs

Inspired by Lance Armstrong's Retirement

— February 16, 2011 — Autos
Whether it's visual appeal or functionality, the design of a bike ultimately rests on comfort for the rider. Lance Armstrong certainly knows this, although it may not be as important to him anymore considering his retirement -- for good. Despite a comeback in 2009, Armstrong is serious about calling it quits to dedicate more time to family and the Live Strong foundation.

Inspired by his recent announcement, these innovative bike designs are what you might see him riding in post-retirement.
