The industrial design thing

I found out late in life that I’m a freak for industrial design. My recent passion for bikes is fueled by this interest as well as ultralight hiking gear, boats and photographic equipment. Systems make for even more the temptation and those categories fall easily into that quagmire!

I found Zahid Sardar’s book, 100 Best Bikes which is pure industrial design porn and I enjoyed it immensely. It was very much an inspiration for the modifications to my Trek PDX bike.


So I’ve begun “collecting” bikes with my camera. I found this wonder locked to the window guard outside a local thrift store (it was a customer’s and not for sale).
