Some of the more interesting new designs in urban cycling are, perhaps not surprisingly, emerging from non-traditional sources. One of the latest to catch our eye is the product of a collaboration between Jonny Johansson, creative director behind Swedish denim/design firm Acne, and Italian bike manufacturers Bianchi. It’s a head-turning exercise in classic Italian styling with a fashionable twist.
The Acne/Bianchi bicycle in pink with dropped handlebars
The female frame, based on Bianchi’s Pista model, is shaped like a traditional men’s bike only smaller, complemented by a soft suede seat and available in chrome, green (our choice), yellow, orange, and pink.

All versions will be available from March at Acne Studios in New York and through special order at acnestudios.com.
