Dwell Media President, Michela OConnor Abrams: It has always been part of our plan at Dwell Media to bring a world class event to New York City similar to what we have done in Los Angeles with Dwell on Design each June. New York magazine was the perfect partner for this endeavor as both of our brands celebrate great design and embrace new challenges. We look forward to developing a unique and enduring partnership that delivers a fresh perspective and new ideas to New Yorks design community.

Coming on the heels of our successful new stand-alone magazine New York Design Hunting, this partnership with Dwell Media is an exciting opportunity to further our impact in the design world, says New York Media publisher Larry Burstein. This is the first time in recent years that weve teamed up in this way with another magazine, and doing so with an influential brand like Dwell the results are sure to be phenomenal.

City Bikes Manufacturer Linus Bikes Comments on New York Citys New Bike Share Program

Bohemia, NY (PRWEB) August 16, 2012

On August 16, City Bikes Manufacturer Linus Bikes commented on the first New York City bike sharing program called Citi Bike. Citi Bike is poised to launch with 7,000 strategically located rentable bicycles across parts of New York, making this the largest program to date in the United States. Following a recent expansion of city bike lanes, the program is designed to be an alternate form of travel for the millions of city residents who make daily use of mass transit.

As detailed by the BBC, New York Citys Department of Transportation estimates that half of the daily commutes in the city are less than 2 miles. With an initial launch of 7000 bikes and 420 stations, Citi Bike is placing rental stations in areas with heavy foot traffic, like Grand Central Station. The program will initially be focused on lower Manhattan, Brooklyn, and Queens, with the city already planning a large expansion for 2013. The rental bikes are armored, high-tech velocipede drones; outfitted with GPS for trip tracking, front and rear lights that glow upon pedaling, heavy-duty tires and a thick frame.

Linus Bikes representative China Reevers comments, This is certainly one of the most ambitious bike sharing programs to date. New York has certainly done their homework, and introducing a fleet of bikes to the populace will hopefully add to the citys clean air initiative, promoting a healthier option for a daily commute. This combination of a greener planet and healthier living is what Linus Bikes is all about.

While the green movement continues to grow, cities are taking an increased interest in other transit options as other cities embrace bike sharing programs. Reevers adds, Doubts about the viability of bike sharing programs should diminish as these programs gain popularity and expand. If New Yorks Citi Bike program can prove to be successful, it should only pave the way for future bike sharing programs. Our bicycles arent only for commuting but they are to help encourage a healthy lifestyle.

Linus Bikes is a California-based bicycle manufacturer that specializes in creating vintage style city bikes and commuter bikes. Not simply a bicycle company, Linus Bikes sells a complete line of accessories for the environmentally conscious and for those who have a fondness for European style bicycles and the great tradition of European cycling.

An electronic cigarette, or e-cigarette, is an electrical device that simulates the act of tobacco smoking by producing an inhaled vapor bearing the physical sensation, appearance, and often the flavor (with or without nicotine content) of inhaled tobacco smoke, without its odor or, ostensibly, its health risks.

E cig uses heat to vaporize a propylene glycol- or glycerin-based liquid solution into an aerosol mist, similar to the way a nebulizer or humidifier vaporizes solutions for inhalation.

The device’s components usually include a small liquid reservoir, a heating element, and a power source, which may be a battery or a wired USB adapter.

Most electronic cigarettes are portable, self-contained cylindrical devices in varying sizes, and many are designed to outwardly resemble traditional cigarettes.

Most are also reusable, with replaceable and refillable components, though some models are disposable. Liquids that produce vapor for electronic cigarettes are available in many different flavor varieties and nicotine concentrations, including nicotine-free versions.
