A New-age Commuter Bicycle Concept is Coming
Pratt Student Nick Foley has spent the past year working on an urban bike, namely Etta. It is a new-age urban commuter bicycle that is safer, more convenient, and more accessible to non-cyclists than traditional ones. The bike has a semi-recumbent design with the rider pedaling in front of themselves and an upright seat. Etta riders are placed a lot higher, in level with cyclists and motorists. The bike’s front and back lighting are powered by pedaling, while the bike sports a cargo compartment for baggage or groceries. The leather seat is fully height adjustable and gives the rider the chance to sit in a more relaxed, reclined posture. The bike is made from aluminum and weighs around 20-25 pounds.
