Cool or weird?
A friend sent this link to the new "Moof" bicycle, designed in Amsterdam Sjoerd Smit and offered for sale ($600) by Areaware, a NY design firm.
(See more on the Moof here)
At first, I was taken by the in-frame light and the recognition of the basic beauty of the commuter bike frame.
The more I look at those huge TIG welds and think about the unforgiving aluminum, the more I'm inclined to dismiss it as a designer project that will come and go without leaving much mark. But what do I know?
