can someone w urban planning background explain why bollards to protect bike lanes and crosswalks are soft and crushable by cars? Why not make the car suffer if it hits? Cars have already run over and dragged away most of the ones by my home w no consequence https://t.co/zFxc7SBjJK— Kane (@kane) Dec 13, 2021
The reason careless errors like this are important is because, as science and technology scholars teach us, tech is not created in a social vacuum. It is built within, and often reifies, power structures. By ignoring that lesson, we keep those power structures in place https://t.co/zMLeLb44MQ— Becca Lewis (@beccalew) September 16, 2020

📺 Why to buy a Micro Pedalflow | YouTube
It was time to reinterpret and revise the modern fun machine. The new aluminium rims are one of the most notable changes. In addition to being very chic, they are much more resistant and robust than the original spokes. The pedals were also strengthened and the pedal crank widened, lending extreme stability to the chain system. The bicycle chain was lengthened and now facilitates even simpler acceleration. In short, it is now even more stable and capable of meeting the heavy demands of Pedalflow fans.
But don’t panic, even those of us who are less sportingly inclined can enjoy the Pedalflow. It’s still very easy to ride and, thanks to its light weight of only 7 kg, suitable for commuters or a pleasant trip around town. It can be folded with ease and its compact design stowed away without difficulty.

👓 How the design firm behind the Xbox built the bike of the future | The Verge
"We wanted you to be able to take the bike and go with how the city moves." Teague was enlisted to design a new kind of bike by Oregon Manifest, a non-profit dedicated to making the world think differently about bikes. Its Bike Design Project gave firms in five cities the opportunity to build a bike made with their city in mind; the public then voted on the winner, which will enter a limited production run from Fuji Bikes. The New York City bike had a USB phone charger built in; The Evo, from San Francisco, was all about modular storage. Chicago's Blackline bike was a rugged pothole-conquerer of a bike, and Portland's PDX came with an app to personalize the ride just for you. For every different city, a different bike. But the voters picked Seattle. They picked Denny, the bike Jackson and the team at Teague designed with Sizemore Bicycles, a custom-bike maker in the city.
