The Bagbike, like several of its competitors, takes into consideration the fact that urban bikers generally need to tote purses, computers, schoolbooks, and the like. "But carrying a backpack can make you sweat, leaving your computer on the luggage rack is dangerous, even a cell phone in the pocket is not comfortable when we are riding," French designers Francois Bernard, Sonja Breuninger, and Marion Pinaffo say in their artists' statement.
Their solution? Dividing the bike frame in two, and joining the parts to create a storage compartment in the center for holding essential items.
