Bicycles are amazing means of transportation. Bicycles can be used to get from point A to B, and they’re also pretty useful for picnics or just a relaxing ride in the park. There are many reasons to get a bicycle.
They’re pretty obvious but let us just name at least 5:
1. Bicycling doesn’t pollute the environment.
2. Bicycles are much cheaper than cars.
3. You don’t have to pay for gas, they pretty much run on fat.
4. You get a workout while doing your usual daily errands.
5. You get to avoid traffic.
And if those are not enough, here’s an awesome iBike concept that not only looks amazing it can also charge your iPod while you’re bicycling.
ECO // 07 – Compactable Urban Bicycle
This bicycle can be disassembled completely. Even the wheels fold up. The secret is in the wheels. Each wheel consists of 6 modules that can be separated and folded up to save up space.
This is a great option for transporting your bike. You can just fold it up and put it in the trunk. It’s also a great solution for people who like taking their bicycles on vacation. Since it’s so compact you can just take it on a plane in a suitcase.
This bicycle is shaped like the letter “X” and can be folded up when needed. The folding is done in 6 easy steps thanks to the quick-release skewer mechanism.
Another prominent detail that we’d like to mention is that this bike, unlike most bikes, doesn’t use chains or cables. You heard it tight, no chains.
It’s no secret to cyclists that the most easily broken part of the bicycle is the chain. That’s the first detail that usually needs fixing or replacing. Well, with the X Bike you can forget about it, no more chains.
This bicycle is also health conscious. It has a specially designed prostatitis preventing seat.
Backpack Bicycle by Chang Ting Jen
The bicycle weighs about 5 kilograms, which isn’t that much when you think about. The designer also says that it might become lighter as the metal parts can be replaced by plastic ones.
The Backpack bicycle was made to suit the needs of people who live in the city but like to explore. It’s very compact, so you can easily take it with you as a backpack when using public transportation, but once you’re outside you can unfold it and you’re ready to cycle.
Carrier Bike by Shin Hyung Sub Shin
The carrier bike has a special compartment in the middle that has more than enough space to store whatever you need in the day.
You can put your briefcase or a handbag there. You can use it to store a change of clothing if you work at a place that has a uniform.You can even put a pair of changing shoes in there, so you can wear comfy sneakers while you’re bicycling and change into your stylish office shoes when you get to work.
The bicycle is also a bit of a transformer.It can be folded up to resemble a shopping cart, so you can wheel it around with you in the supermarket and use it to carry your produce.
Green Shadow Bike by Mr. Onuff
This bicycle is green on many levels. It’s not just a color, it’s also environmentally safe.
The Green Shadow also has some pretty awesome and impressive technical features. It has a built in computer that can help you monitor your health and keep track of the miles. So you’ll always know how many miles you cycled and how that benefited you health, or how many calories you burned.
This bicycle can even track your heart-rate. Unfortunately, this concept was designed for a game and not for actual production, but it’s still an interesting bicycle when you consider that it’s not impossible to make one like this. For all we know it might become a reality one day. A lot of things that we own now where just a fantasy 10 years ago.
Variable Frame Bike
This bicycle is made with comfort and versatility in mind. The bicycle’s frame can be changed depending on your needs. For example, when you’re in the city and in a rush you’d use the normal upright position.
It’s optimal for speed and getting you from point A to B as quickly and efficiently as possible. It also gives you more control over the bike it case you need to ride through some traffic.But if you want a relaxing ride in the park or you’ve gotten out of the city and into the countryside and want have a leisurely ride and enjoy the view you’d be much more comfortable in the reclining position.
The best part is that you don’t even have to get off the bike to switch modes. You just push a lever and lean forward or backwards depending what mode you’d like your bicycle to be in. Written by / source: 10amazing.com
