"I wanted the bike to be able to go over all kinds of terrains and especially infinite and poetic territories." Ph.S



 This isn't quite what I was expecting from the man who brought us the Louis Ghost Chair. Even the scooter-bike he designed for the bikeshare of Bordeaux, France has the look of a classic bicyclette. Still, I find something relatable about the Mud electric bike. As a Southerner, it's not unusual to see a truck (or monster truck) plastered with an afternoon's muddin' during warmer months. Perhaps the people who like muddin' would like it even better if they could get covered in mud without soiling the interiors of their trucks. While the bikes aren't my thing, I might mess with these Starck x Giro helmets (below).
