RCA - Design Products MA programme

EB01
London features a large number of co-working spaces; this e-bike is designed as an extra service for these businesses to offer. Removing a saddle to prevent theft is normally a hassle; here it’s a handy way to bring the battery in for recharging. The integral navigation system helps non-Londoners find their way around.
