blog article on utility cycle design

I know most around here usually have in mind "heavy loads" when we think of utility cycling and although "heavy loads" are certainly a big area where conventional cycles are often lacking in utility, they are also lacking in many other areas as well such as cleanliness, convenience, ease of storage, maintenance, durability, etc.

But when's the last time you heard someone talk about eliminating dirt traps as a parameter in frame design? Or bringing over to bicycles experience from the design of can openers (and what can be more utilitarian than can openers!)?

Well, bicycle designer Mark Sanders talks about all this and more in an invited article over at the bicycle design blog.
