Byrne, Bikers, Byrne

Keen bike rider and former Talking Heads frontman, David Byrne (pictured) has designed a series of nine bike racks that can now be found throughout various New York neighbourhoods.

My sister A, who's studying in NYC at the moment is also a bike rider. I wonder if she has locked her wheels to one yet.

She'll have to hurry, as the racks will only be around for eleven months, after which time they are being sold. The Department of Transportation is holding a competition to design the replacement racks. You can see the finalists here. And you can see images and find a map of the racks here.
