Copenhagen is a bike-friendly city, which made it a natural location for an international bike design competition. The idea (which led to OPENbike) was to make a bike that lends itself to bike sharing. In different cities across Europe (and a select few in the US), it is becoming more and more popular to have communal bikes that can be rented.
LOTS Design created the OPENbike. For more on their winning design and to see the runners-up, check out the links below.
