"A thumb-operated hydraulic brake system, a rear light which projects onto the rider’s back to maximise visibility and a bamboo transporter bike for isolated communities were among 10 prize-winning design concepts celebrated at the International Bike Design Competition on Tuesday."

Opens up all sorts of advertising possibilities, Warthog ... "Back off a metre, Warney!" on the jersey courtesy of TAC, "This junk in the trunk made possible by KFC" on the bib shorts, etc.
