The Dutch Master is based on the beloved Worksman cruiser frame–a workhorse foundation used throughout the New York delivery community, and manufactured in Queens, New York for over 110 years. Core77 customized the frame, fitting it out with a carefully curated set of components, each with its own story.
The bike was hand-built by KT Higgins, a Brooklyn-based ex-bike messenger (infamous for her crash in the movie Pedal), and proprietor of Bushwick Bike Shop, her one-year-old bikeshop in the Bushwick neighborhood of Brooklyn.
You can pop by the Apple Store to meet the designers on Saturday the 11th in New York (Prince Street) at 3pm"“ and afterwards the Dutch Master will be on display in the lobby of the Ace Hotel on West 29th for one week from July 11th through July 18th.

Ross Lovegrove never ceases to amaze us with his serious industrial design talent. We assume that it’s his knack for combining that which is visually stunning with an absurd amount of practicality that drew the folks at Biomega into his collaborative arms for what amounts to a stunning addition to their ever growing line of “furniture for locomotion,” or what in layman’s terms could be called a pretty sweet bike. The Biomega Bamboo utilizes a natural material that when properly prepared, is stronger than steel. The result is an eye-catching fusion of nature and innovation on two wheels. To catch a sneak peek at this cycling sight to behold, head over to Milan’s Design Library at Via Savona between the 22nd to 27th of April, where it will be on display from 10am to 10pm. Congrats JMS!
We blog about bikes quite a bit, but sometimes you have to be a nut to get through high speed urban traffic. In an effort to improve cyclist visibility the Transportation of London has put forth an ad campaign to bring attention to the issue. The first was a widely played video about a basketball team and a dancing bear. We all watched — then watched a second time and laughed. Next up, they’ve really out done themselves with a classic whodunnit? tale. Its like gymnastics in cinematography. Really amazing how they pull this off. Have fun with this video and few more that basically let you play “spot the differences” like the old Highlights magazines.
