    I have a question about your old bike racks. Could they be overcome with a 2x4? If not, can you please ship them to Toronto? T.I.A.

    I'm not one for fawning over bicycles, but I do believe that our bikes communicate with us, and what this bike is saying is, "You're an idiot." BikeSnobNYC

    This was on BSNYC not to long ago. David Byrne is the ****. Glad to see these rolled out.

    Locations and renderings of all the Byrne bike racks: http://www.davidbyrne.com/art/bike_racks/index.php

    I saw that female silhouette one a couple weeks ago. Sorta cool, but makes for limited bike locking configurations.

    I love David Byrnes (at least TH era David Byrnes), but some of these designs are hella impractical as actual bike racks.

    Clearly I'm being too literal though.

    if its a cycling-related thing that catches the eye of a non-cyclist, it may be a super positive thing.

    I agree, it's got the potential to do some good in terms of raising awareness. I wonder with some of the designs if passer-byes will recognize the connection to cycling.
