Openbike is a manifesto on sustainable urbanism, urban transport, distributed manufacturing, shared knowledge, the community, and the responsible use of resources. It is materialized in the design of a non-polluting urban transport, the bicycle, that can be manufactured by its own user within the city it is going to be used. The user can download the fabrication files from the web and build his or her own Openbike at a local digital fabrication lab. In that sense, we transport data instead of materials. The result is a handassembled wooden bike with parts manufactured by CNC and 3D printing and locally sourcing the rest of the parts, adapted to the user and their city. The fabrication files are licensed under Creative Commons 4.0, allowing the designs to be improved, modified, manufactured, and shared again.
