New Bike Designs

These are nuts! I can't believe they designed a bike with no rear hub!
These are a little too radical for my taste.

So I'm checking out the photos, and my wife walks through the room, sees the bikes, and says "My God, are those queer, or what?" I think that pretty much sums up my thoughts, as well.

yeah.. photoshopped renderings.. Probably by a design student as a project.

it brings up a good point though. How far will bikes advance? materials will keep getting better slowly of course, but I think the whole dynamics of riding, or a new style of riding will have to arise for anything close to as far out as these actually show up for real..

steel triangle frame hardtail . . all the fun I need!
