London mayor Boris Johnson has chosen BIXI as a wedding gift to Prince William and Kate Middleton.

“It is a tandem version of the traditional BIXI bicycle developed jointly by Michel Dallaire and Devinci Cycles which we delivered at the request of our London partner, Serco”, declared Roger Plamondon, Chairman of the board at Public Bike System Company.

The customized BIXI has a few modifications but overall maintains the trademark silhouette of the Montreal novelty: it contains an oversized downtube to ensure the bike’s rigidity, seven speeds, an adapted braking system, a greater wheelbase and two bells.

‘‘We are very proud of the work we have accomplished to make this special gift a reality and are delighted to find our BIXI at the heart of the royal festivities’’ concluded Roger Plamondon.
