Teague re-inventing the bicycle?

Futuristic design builds electrics into the bike

A futuristic bicycle design by Teague has been spotted on the Core77 blog.

The 'Pulse' appears to be wired up with several innovative features, including a lumious front triangle and indicators placed at both the barends, as well as mountable at the seatpost.

The pedals are counter balanced, meaning the pedal cage will always be ready for the cyclists foot. Elsewhere on the build, lights appear to be seen built into the seatpost, while three rechargeable batteries appear to be located within the steerer tube, presumably powering all electrics.

Here's the pitch from Teague:

"150 years of continuous/passionate refinement has resulted in bicycle components that are both ultra efficient and ultra reliable. And yet this passionate perfection hides in plain sight. The power of design is its ability to create (animal) magnetism around compelling ideas in relevant context. Dana Krieger, Industrial designer at Teague presents a tribute to the triangle. A reinterpretation of an icon, which unifies individual components into a coherent statement in tune with contemporary needs (and attitudes). Equal parts gym membership, fashion statement and Kyoto pact contributor – Pulse is a transportation solution in synch with the needs of today's urban denizen."
