What does this have to do with anything? Most of these are not even bicycle, are made by car companies, and don't have pedals.
Well....I see a few with pedals. At least I think that's a pedal on the large red one.
The red one is a Ferrari motorcycle. The pedals are for changing gears. None of them look like anything that would be used as a "car-free" vehicle. None of them have any storage that I can see at all.
Well, they are all technically "car" free. But most are ICE powered.
Perhaps it is to be expected from someone's first post. The polygon is a bicycle though I guess it depends on a flexible mystery shaft drive to transmit power. And the dicycle at the bottom looks like an engineering student's nightmare, It looks heavy and likely to scoop debris between the tires and the hoops surrounding them. Though I suppose that it's a study in building hubless wheels which seems to be a current fad in design schools as exampled by the fact that 3 of the 7 vehicles have them. Not that people need or want hubless wheels, but that it's an engineering challenge.
Maybe the OP will come and make a second post explaining what he meant to say with his first post.
You'll see those commonly in the "Flying-Car Free" Forum.
That last one looks like it has airless tires and zero suspension.... might make for a rough commute.
The Polygon bike doesn't even look ride-able. The seat is almost a foot behind the pedals. Imagine the position that would put the cyclist's body in. The seat is actually right over the rear wheels hub!
I found the entire article it's taken from. http://www.automotto.org/entry/polyg...th-bike-style/
This is a bike with modern lifestyle in mind and hence we decided to call in Bike-Style and it really fits the billing of being a modern carrier that integrates your techno-savvy needs with commuting across the blocks of your city.
I guess you don't need a good bike if you are only commuting a few blocks. But the article and the comments are worth a look.
There are other links
Here's the designer's home page.
Moved from LCF
My Bikes: 2009 Breezer Uptown EX | 1980 Miyata Six Ten | 1970 Hercules
Wife's Bike: 2008 Globe City 7
Some of these look like the designers want cyclists on the game grid, until we die playing.
End of line.
