Philippe Starck and the Mayor of Bordeaux, Alain Juppe unveil the City PIBAL Streamer concept design at Cyclab 2

Designer Philippe Starck and the Mayor of Bordeaux have just unveiled a new bike/scooter concept that was inspired by ideas from over 300 citizens
In November 2011, the City of Bordeaux in France began a special consultation with its citizens. In an exercise that could easily have created a Homer mobile, participants were asked to make suggestions on what they would like to see included in the design of a new town bike. Over 300 citizens shared their ideas, which designer Philippe Starck has now used as the inspiration for what has been provisionally called the City PIBAL Streamer - an eye-catching concept where riders can opt to sit and pedal like on a traditional bike, or stand on the platform and use like a scooter.
