Oregon Manifest Video = Utility Cyclist Wet Dream

I love a good utility bike. Moving through space on a thoughtful bike, with the ability to carry things, mudguards, and a nice aesthetic is pretty wonderful. The Constructor’s Design Challenge at the recent Oregon Manifest asked framebuilders to do just that, and then race them. If you like utility bikes, this is a fun video to watch. 29 entries. 77 miles of Oregon-style on-and-off road product testing. 1 extraordinary weekend.

The Constructor’s Design Challenge was full of big statements and small victories. 100% bike-tastic!

Nearly 5,000 people viewed the winning bikes during our 6 weekend run!

    Hey, great video – I hadn’t seen it! I’m excited about next year. The Constructor’s Challenge really was a fantastic event.

    Oh, man. I wish I could have been there. Hey! Maybe I’ll plan a trip next year.

    I think Jan Hiene is onto something in that performance (not necessarily the “race”) should have more influence in the judging. I hope they take that into consideration..
