Folding Bikes - Usual folding design - wheel
Bikeforums.net is a forum about nothing but bikes. Our community can help you find information about hard-to-find and localized information like bicycle tours, specialties like where in your area to have your recumbent bike serviced, or what are the best bicycle tires and seats for the activities you use your bike for.
I'm going to guess you mean... "un"usual. ;)
Both designs seem a bit unrealistic, but that's just me. I'm far from a bike design expert.
I don't see the point of making the frame as a full circle. The beauty of this design is the frame circle covers the rear wheel, which covers the front wheel. But the frame doesn't have to be a full circle. It is not like wheels, which have to roll. A half circle could be sufficient, just like those step-over bikes for women.

Both of those are concept bikes that have already been discussed in the forums.
I don't expect either of them to go anywhere; they're just fun 3d renderings.
Steering that first one would be interesting with no head tube and the frame hinged in the middle.
