People People have designed a new bike, which is a successor to their popular ‘Kronan’ model. ‘Spiran’ (Swedish for ‘Scepter’) is a sleek and minimally-designed bike for the city, inspired by old Swedish post and delivery bikes.

The designers have combined a robust construction with a lightweight frame and slim racing tires, optimized for agility and speed. To eliminate the need for clumsy and annoying bike locks, they designed an integrated bike lock that folds out from the front basket, locking the bike in the front wheel or around a city lamp post or fence.

They chose a single speed approach with a carbon fibre belt instead of a chain, which doesn’t need any lubrication or maintenance, so city bikers can keep their trousers free from grease. This simple, clever and robust feature offers a smoother and quieter ride. Click through to see images of the Spiran bike:
