I’ve been following James Thomas and his Bicycle Design blog since its inception in 2005.
This morning, he announced he’s closing up shop to devote his energies elsewhere, including his new industrial design blog.
stole borrowed some of my best inspirations from James and his blog and learned a tremendous amount about bike design, the history of bikes and how the bike industry works. If you haven’t perused his posts in a while, go take a look, and then go and say hi and his new blog!

I spotted the famous “Oreik Et” bicycle at San Jose Bike Party last Friday night.
Oreik Et is Te Kiero backwards. Te quiero is one way to say “I love you” in Spanish.
The owner of this bike is known for building crazy machines like this in his secret workshop somewhere in San Jose. iMinusD has a little more about the builder and his crazy bikes over at their blog. You can view my slideshow of the Bike Party “Safety Ride” here.
Some of the items shown in this video are a little meh for me (who cares about a cap for a Presta valve?), but there are several reasonably clever ideas shown in this video.
This video showcases new projects in Industrial and Product Design, Art Direction, Graphic Design, Media & Interaction Design and Photography programs at /Ecole cantonale d’art de Lausanne – the University of Art & Design in Lausanne, Switzerland.
