The team from Ideo and Rock Lobster Custom Cycles collect images of a variety of bicycles and other modes of transportation to inform their thinking. The idea isn't to copy what's already been done, but rather to learn and draw inspiration.

The team from Ideo and Rock Lobster Custom Cycles came up with a "mind map" to refer back to as they created their utility bike. The mind map it intended to keep them focused on creating the specific bike they have in mind.
