The 10th International Bicycle Design Competition handed out its latest awards at the 2006 Taipei International Cycle Show earlier this month. This year's winners included fold-up bicycles, bikes that communicate directly with their riders and several three-wheelers as well.

An international committee began the judging process last summer, reviewing computer designs. The 21 finalists were then required to build models for the final judging at the beginning of the year. Following are the winners.
