What’s old is new again

The KingFisher footbikeHere’s a design exercise from Daniel Stillman that’s a bit familiar, but with a few interesting details: a mesh basket that telescopes out of the head tube, a mix of pneumatic and solid wheels, a skateboard-y deck and an optional front-hub motor. It’s pretty, and it’s nice that people are thinking about scooters.

I wonder what made him call it a “footbike.” A tip of the helmet to Alan Stewart on the Kickbiking Yahoo! mail list.
