Bay Area Bike Share Bike Design

“Exactly colors to be determined” like it says in this diagram, but here’s what our Bay Area Bike Share bikes will look like.

Bay Area Bike Share

This bike with a step through frame features 7 speeds, front and rear lights powered by a front hub dynamo, drum brakes, fenders, skirt guard, chain guard, and a small front rack.

The bike share will be operated by Alta Bike Share, with kiosks in San Francisco, Redwood City, Palo Alto, Mountain View and San Jose, with operation planned beginning in August (but we’ve been hearing “SF Bike Share coming Real Soon Now!” since 2010, so don’t hold your breath).

Update: How come nobody told me Streetsblog had this two weeks ago?


  1. What – no GPS or other gadgetry? – this is Silicon Valley, how will we be able to get anywhere without google maps available on the handlebars?

  2. The “Celeste” color is a stinker, and will keep most businessmen from ever trying it out.

    Go with International Orange, the color of the Golden Gate Bridge!
