Title: Portland Design Works-community Works-Summer 2012
Seen on: Urban Velo
Dan Powell is the co-owner of Portland Design Works, a sometimes contributor to Urban Velo and the real deal guy in the industry who just loves to ride a bike. I’ve spent some great times raging on two wheels with Dan—if you like Urban Velo you’d like his sort of trouble. He’s the guy grilling dogs in the Rock Racing cap. Pretty awesome to see PDW doing so well the past few years, and even better to see how far they’ve gone in spreading the love back to the rest of the cycling community. A model for us all.

Title: Invisible Bicycle Helmet
“If people say it’s impossible we have to prove them wrong.”

Design students Anna and Terese took on a giant challenge as an exam project. Something no one had done before. If they could swing it, it would for sure be revolutionary. The bicycle is a tool to change the world. If we use bikes AND travel safe: Life will be better for all.

Title: HMPL No.15 Saddle Bag spot #1
Designed to hang nicely under the saddle of most any bicycle, the No. 15 transports all of your essentials without the burden of a backpack. Save your shirt and your dignity on a hot summer’s day, unless you always ride shirtless. It’s big enough to hold a 15-case of beer, roughly 15x11x7″ when rolled up.
The joy of the No.15 is its versatility. If you want to leave your saddle alone, you can throw it in your basket, strap it to your rack, attach it to your handlebars, sling it over your shoulder—the possibilities are endless.
Where we’re from, rain is an inevitability. Constructed from durable waterproof materials, the No. 15 will keep your things dry in a downpour. This doesn’t mean its 100% waterproof, but it’s pretty damn close.
