Pulse: An Urban Bike Concept from Teague

Part Tron fantasy bicycle, part safety powerhouse, this bicycle concept by Teague marries form and function in a beautiful way. The Pulse bike injects safety features that manage to add cool to the classically inspired frame instead of detracting from it. The mid-section of the bike is coated with photo-luminescent powder for added visibility and safety during night riding. They incorporated intuitive and common-sense controls for safety and sophistication, including bar-end mounted LED turn signals. A removable and rechargeable battery bundle powers the lights and can be charged with a micro USB cell phone charger.

Pulse was "inspired by single seat, two-wheeled simplicity, the Fixie and the Fighter," bringing together solid, time-tested components with modern features invented for "the urban landscape, drawing new eyes to centuries old technology for human locomotion."
