Fitting to Ride / Public Bicycle

Fitting to Ride
Fitting to Ride

In popular areas, each bicycle of the public bicycle system (PBS) can serve an average of ten or more users a day. It’s critical that publicly shared bicycles are designed to provide for various user needs.

Without appropriate seat height, cycling can bring excessive burden to the rider's knees, as well as endanger the cyclist and others. Accordingly, the seat height of sharing bike should be manually adjusted to an appropriate height prior to riding.

By combining the user information stored on the service platform and an automatic adjustment system on these bicycles, this PBS aims to provide the best comfort and safety for city cyclists.
