Detour: Fiat 500 Pop and Lounge Bicycles

Two new folding bikes, the Lounge and Pop, have been designed for the Fiat 500 by Compagnia Ducale and Officina 83 Style.

The Pop:

The higher-end Lounge:

If you missed the Fiat 500 "Seduction" ad here it is again:

What are you looking at? Eh?
What are you looking at? (slap)
Are you undressing me with your eyes?
Poor guy… you can’t help it?
Is your heart beating? Is your head spinning?
Do you feel lost thinking that I could be yours forever?

  1. Rumors are out there about a station wagon Fiat, sort of like the Mini Clubman. The original wagon from the 60's is almost as cute as the classic topolino but has more space for stuff. Perhaps a new version would have room for REAL bikes (with the wheels removed)inside? Larry could see a CycleItalia support vehicle version in his imagination!

  2. The Fiat 500 fits a road bike in it great, with the back seats down and passenger seat forward. I found it better than the Panda, funny enough.
