At first glance, Donky Bike may appear a little more unwieldy than other bicycles but the strong build is intended to lend itself to an increased load-carrying ability. Industrial designer Ben Wilson had in mind a vision to create a utility bike that could withstand roughage while not breaking the bank. Smart design, such as the square-section tubing that is structurally stronger and the 20-inch wheels that minimize the bike’s footprint, makes up the foundation of Donky. The urbanite is sure to appreciate the front and rear platforms, which are conveniently railed to support any large boxes or just a standard bag of groceries. Though real donkeys are known to be terrors when it comes to using them for transport, Donky Bike is sure to be a friendly, easy, and stylish ride.
