Similar in minimalist philosophy (if not in form) to JRuiter + Studio's city bike is this Gravity Bike by Jeff Tiedeken, a.k.a. Monkey Likes Shiny.

I’m a lapsed industrial designer. I was born in NYC and figured I’d die there, but a few years ago I abandoned New York to live on a farm in the countryside with my wife. We have six dogs.
