We like a good bike at PBS, so when Stephanie from Underscore sent these over, our jaws hit the floor! Underscore have collaborated with bespoke bike-makers Vanguard, to produce these one-off limited edition series of four bicycles: Cloud, Rain, Mist and Dew.

Taking inspiration from the overlapping stages of precipitation and evaporation, elements of the hydrologic cycle were studied and distinguished to represent each bicycle, reinforcing notions of repetition, renewal, reflection and change.

All bikes were built as single-speed kinetic sculptures and fitted with coaster hub brakes. Cloud, Rain, Mist and Dew were exhibited in the Tokyo DesignTide 2010. Check them out here; Two have already sold.
