We’re big fans of biking in New York City, there’s really no better way to see the city and get around quickly, while staying in shape and being kind to the environment. Please, just remember to wear a helmet and follow the same traffic laws as cars. At the end of the month, Schwinn is introducing The Vestige, a biodegradable model made from recyclable flax fiber and coated with water soluble paint. The 80% flax frame is super strong and rivals it’s carbon fiber variants in terms of performance and capability. It’s also topped off with bamboo fenders and grips! I think we’re going to put our hard earned dough down and get one. (via CoolHunting)
The Vestige will be available at a few local dealers in Brooklyn and Staten Island.
