Manifest

The bicycle is the perfect transducer to match man's metabolic energy to the impedance of locomotion. Equipped with this tool, man outstrips the efficiency of not only all machines but all other animals as well. Bicycles let people move with greater speed without taking up significant amounts of scarce space, energy, or time. They can spend fewer hours on each mile and still travel more miles in a year. They can get the benefit of technological breakthroughs without putting undue claims on the schedules, energy, or space of others. They become masters of their own movements without blocking those of their fellows. Their new tool creates only those demands which it can also satisfy. Every increase in motorized speed creates new demands on space and time. The use of the bicycle is self-limiting. It allows people to create a new relationship between their life-space and their life-time, between their territory and the pulse of their being, without destroying their inherited balance.

Ozbikes reintroduces the most popular vehicle of the last three centuries keeping high the value of the Made in Italy by an incoparable work of design and quality.

Each model is created by the combination of unique pieces and handwelded framesets by a Paduan master of framesets; the use of the best Columbus pipes made in Italy during the 80th’s gives more distinction to every creation.

The goal is to rebirth, step by step, the most beautiful cities of our country in a mix of balance and harmony matched to the passion and the love of its creators.
