Taika Hand-Made Grizzly Bike

“The Grizzly” bike is the first product released by new Australian design company Taika. The prototype went through a battery of tests that only an active two-year-old boy can subject to a product. It has been ridden through an apartment, into the garden, along the footpath, across the promenade at the beach, down the pedestrian ramps, in between heavy foot traffic on nearby streets and over again and again every weekend for more than 12 months. The bike has been handmade by good people who care about the products they make. It hasn’t been made on a production line. It hasn’t been made by heavy machinery. As such, you may come across some love marks. They are signs that we are human, after all. The first one is painted with chalkboard paint, giving many possibilities to the budding bike designer.
