Puma Bikes

PUMA and Biomega have launched a website to sell a range of urban bicycles for Summer 2010. Puma Bikes will offer five models, some with features like folding frames and integrated handlebar baskets.

Everyone is familiar with Puma, but the US market is probably less familiar with Biomega, which was founded in 1998. They distribute products to more than 20 countries, and have headquarters in Copenhagen, Denmark.

    Today’s tip: for stupidity look for pointlessly large (and overpriced) top tubes!

    Maybe one could sell advertising space on them thar gigantic top tubes. Or drill a hole, put a cap on it, and fill it full of beer and ice.

    Wow. those are really really ugly bikes, and a tad expensive for a bunch of generic components.

    PUMA’s designers obviously did not have a hand in the aesthetic of these bikes. Uggo!

    Holy jesus! 870$ for the track bike wannabe!

    Terry’s idea is brilliant.

    The color pallet reminds me of filling my mouth with various colors of poster paint and sneezing.

    I bought one for my unicorn.

    A proud, triumphant day for corporations on the path to ultimate douchebaggery.

    I hope people from Puma read this and rethink unleashing these ugly-ass bikes onto the world. Then again, they’ll probably be popular in London or something…

    In the current state of Bike Culture ,where, more and more people are getting on two wheels,it’s great to see big companies that do their part to turn them away.

    As much as I enjoy Popsicles, building a bike out of them seems a little extreme.

    with the fugly color schems, they kind of look like Barbie’s Malibu beach SS… Shrink them down a few sizes and we may se them at Target.

    The foldable frames seem to be a great attribute of these new bikes :D And the color combination is simply awesome.

  15. DJuly 1, 2010 at 11:26 am

    These bike were designed?! They are an insult to every legit designer. Fugly bikes, please don’t build these!

    The folding bikes are good. The rest, well, just read the comments. Ditto.

    If I were Puma, and I wanted to somehow enter the urban cycling market, call me crazy, but I would start by making a line of urban cycling SHOES, which I hear is something that Puma actually has experience with. Then maybe I’d move into creating a fantastically hideous line of bikes.
