'Bendy bike' invented by Leicester design student wins award

Kevin Scott, a final year Product Design student at Leicester's De Montfort University, has won a runner-up prize in the 2010 New Designer of the Year Awards, which took place in London. The bike is based on a conventional frame in which sectional tubing is used allowing the bike to be bent around a lamp post or similar pole, after which a single lock can be placed through both wheels and frame. The judges awarded the prize to 'encourage the further development of this unique and striking idea'. More information can be found here.
