Epo Conceptual Bike

View all 9 Photos

Still in development, the oddly named Epo Bike is an experiment in affordable Dutch design. Conceived by Bob Schiller, the bicycle frame is made of just two sheets of aluminum which have been pressed and spot-welded together. The simple construction reduces labor time and cost, allowing for this handcrafted European bike to one day be sold at a relatively low price point. Tech and money aside, the minimalist design looks sharp in shades of white, silver, and brown. Many cyclists have their eye on the conceptual version of the Epo Bike, and Schiller hopes to begin production next year.
