This is one mean looking beast.
Peugeot’s design team have taken the basic bicycle invention and turned it into a masterpiece of its time. The B1K is a carbon-constructed race bike built for the both track or city riding. One part of the bike concept is to angle the rider’s torso downwards towards the ground, which reduces drag and provides improvements in weight balance and power transfer. Also being a chainless drivetrain makes it look sexier, but how practical is it? We’re yet to find out. Plus without the down tube to reinforce the frame, how rigid and solid can the body be? I am definitely looking forward to some positive feedback from riders that have a chance to test the B1K. Hit the jump for more looks.
