There have been plenty of modern bikes we love that have graced these pages over the last couple years, but few of them do things as differently as the futuristic Loop Bike from FRANCQ Design Studio. Unlike other options, this Paris-based industrially designed bike focuses on a front tube and seat tube that are mated together with a “looped” frame piece–hence the name–that connects below the handle bars and wraps around the rear. It’s a structural and asymmetrical component that gives the bike its unique look while keeping the riding stance and functionality familiar. What’s more, it’s built with a Wilwood brake system, 26″ wheels, oversized tires, lights, GPS, Bluetooth and everything else you need to tackle the great outdoors or the urban jungle. The seat tube of The Loop is also built with a secret carrying case / insulated compartment that can easily and safely carry a bottle of wine or whiskey with you to your final destination. The Loop Bike is available in White Paper, Graphite Gray, Pastel Blue, Acid Yellow and a limited edition Wood version.
