The Bike Design Project

The folks at Oregon Manifest have partnered with Levi's Commuter to create a bike-inspired competition they call, The Bike Design Project. The competition asks, "high-level design firms (from five different cities) to collaborate with American bicycle craftsmen to develop the next-wave urban bike." 

The five participating cities include New York, San Francisco, Seattle, Portland, and Chicago and each firm/bicycle-craftsmen must come up with a fully functional prototype. 

Voters decide on which bike will be put into production to create a new line of urban bikes but before you can vote, you have watch all five team's 15-second videos here
