    I've heard about 'bikers penis' ...

    Bicycle seat design is an interesting product area.

    I know women's seats are differently shaped than mens seats...

    I wonder what the seat market looks like....

    different shapes and styles of seats for different kinds of bikes...

    One thing about bikes you may want to address...is clothing.

    I've seen biker's in the city roll up their right pant leg to keep it away from the front Cog's

    what about a cool flexible strap to wrap around your pant leg...

    I also find it interesting that some women riding bicycles in the city wear nice clothes....even a sun dress...

    The on the ground experience of that is scary sometimes, the contrast between heavy metal boxes(cars), and thin tubular steel(Bikes)

    The Bike lane...

    What I like about the Bicycle as a product is that it has an intrinsic story to map.

    The in use story, and the out of use story. Storage vs. usage

    bicycle shape and reason for form... If you've noticed a trend in the Walmart bicycle selection....They copy the high end companies design to sell at a lower price point, typically the Wal mart bike will weigh more than the bike shop high end version....Material usage/cost. etc.

    I think there is opportunity here to Brand an experience.

    ....?!

    You could do a Bike spotting photo shoot...

    Bring your camera on your bike....or rig a DV Camera to your bike.... Maybe you can do a typical Bike day....A Use story...video edited...?

    You can draw your bike designs in solid works... and make animations....
