Proud to share Mission Bicycle’s newest contribution to city cycling: Level is a spacer-mounted shifter designed to pair any handlebar with our Sutro internally geared bicycle. The entire Level development – from concept, to prototype, to fabrication and assembly – took place in the San Francisco Bay Area. For the full story >>> missionbicycle.com/level
Tired of waiting for your city to build safe bicycle infrastructure?
With the push of a button, our new app Strype can add a bike lane to any street, at any time. No red tape, just white lines.
Strype uses your smartphone’s native hardware to create a sense of safety – by rendering bike lanes onto your commute – where actual safety is ellusive.
What previously required years of lobbying, costly environmental impact reports, and countless community meetings about lost parking spaces is now effortless, and free.
Mission Bicycle’s brand new site. This project has been my major focus for most of 2014 and I’m thrilled to see it up and live. We’ve still got some content to add and some dreams for future functionality but it’s an enormous improvement over the old site and a needed and deserved refresh. Check it out.
For the second year running Mission Bicycle made an elaborate April Fools’ campaign. I proposed the idea of a hazard light system for bicycles, exactly like those found on cars. Those blinky red lights seem to confer superiority and impunity on all who push that little triangle button.
“No open parking spaces? No problem, just VIPark. Fire hydrant where you want to be? Just VIPark. When you’ve got coffee or dry cleaning to grab, or simply don’t feel like walking or observing the legal and social expectations of your community, simply VIPark.
VIPark – Because Your Shit Is Just More Important™
VIPark is controlled with the free iOS app (Android coming soon). There’s even a stopwatch to let you know exactly how long you’re being inconsiderate and dangerous.
Go ahead, grab that Venti Mocha, you deserve it. VIPark has you covered. And don’t worry about those pesky cyclists, they see the lights, they’ll go around.”
