Cynical? BikeBiz.com?

Check out the link below for this year’s winning entries. The competition could be re-named ‘Spot the Bike’.

But, you never know, a bike might win in 2005. Anyhow, it doesn’t cost to enter…

The Cycling & Health Tech Industry R&D Center (CHC, formally named the TBIRDC) is organising the 9th International Bicycle Design Competition (IBDC) and invites entries.


Enter before 15th August. You only need to supply a CAD drawing to begin with.

Twenty-four finalists will be selected and notified by September 15th, 2004.

These twenty four submit their final work in the form of a small-scale model by December 20th, 2004. Final results will be announced on March 4th, 2005, the first day of the 2005 Taipei International Cycle Show.

The first prize winner collects $15 000.
