Last year, French designer Philippe Starck and car brand Peugeot teamed up to design the bike for the bike sharing program of the city of Bordeaux in France.

The resulting design, the Pibal bike, is a two-wheeler that is a cross between a scooter and a bike. The hybrid bike was designed for urban use and has rim guards, yellow tires, an automatic two-speed hub, handles, a comfortable seat, and a footrest that lets the user cruise down the streets as if riding a scooter.
