The ‘Denny’ is a new urban bike that comes equipped with turn signals, brake lights, automatic gear shifts, electric pedal assists, and a handlebar that doubles as a lock. Beating out other competitors in The Bike Design Project, Teague x Sizemore Bicycle’s design will start production soon with the help of Fuji Bikes and arrive in stores in 2015. The winner was selected by voters online, but participation doesn’t stop there. The competition’s website promises to give bikes away via its social media networks up until it’s released in stores.
