Bicing in Barcelona: Desing innovation: small front wheel for better handling (!)

Bicing in Brussels is called Villo and its not so innovative.

Recently I been trying Bicing outside Barcelona: in Brussels.
In Brussels Bicing is called Villo and
it is quite different! Comparing both servces
bicing wins hands down.
Here is why:
Bicing bikes are lighter, AND
the front wheel is smaller.
Villo bikes use standard 28” diameter wheels.
This small desing detail makes a huge
difference in urban riding.
I still remember the first ride in Brussles:
Almost toppled over!

ClearChannel made Bicing XOXO
JCDecaux made Villo (Brussels) Sorry

By the way both logos seem designed
by Sheldon.
