Citybird / public bike concept


CITYBIRD is designed to provide high user comfort and best ergonomic values. Its compact frame structure integrates all technical parts to keep the daily wearout at a minimum. No cables or gears stick out anywhere. All components are only suitable within the system, which makes theft in big quantities useless. Via a chipcard the users have access to various comfortable functions, like automatic saddle adjustment, navigation system, search & rent apps. The mobile docking stations are self-explanatory. For best economic viability of the system, all bikes can be "upgraded" with better components without changing their appearance.
