A group called SoBi is trying to bring bike sharing to New York. They’re putting special locks on their bikes and letting users unlock them with an iPhone app. It’s cheaper than most bike sharing programs, because they’re going to NY’s use existing bike racks to store the bikes.

They’re trying to win some Pepsi Refresh money, so if you like the idea, vote for it here.

    Great idea. The lock is a little fugly, but it’ll definitely be a visual indicator that this is a SoBi bike.

    Bike share systems make a lot of sense for visitors. I love renting a bike in a new city, it’s a great way to get around...
