Sticking with the green theme of the last post, I came across this Pininfarina designed mock full suspension bike just sitting around on the streets of Stockholm the other day. That's right, just like the Bugatti bicycle I found last year in Lund, here we have another big brand name beingused on bicycles.
Unfortunately I was saw excited about seeing this (or desperate to get out of the rain) that I was shaking my camera with anticipation whilst taking these.
Is this a Pininfarina Bicycle? Well, no. These bikes seem to happen when Chinese bike factories are producing no name bikes and are a bit stuck for what stickers to attach to them. Just like the Bugatti bike below (or here for the full post), the bike manufacturer will put on a big name brand without much fear of reprisal from the lifted brand as the production might only last for one run or the difficulties in pursuing a trans-national intellectual property case are too great compared to the return.
