I’m not a designer, but I want someone to steal this idea.
It’s a revolutionary (ahem) fun bicycle that works. It’s an extreme sports product for cross-country fun. It is radically foldable too.
It’s a biomimetic concept, based on the biology of insect legs, which in many cases are springs.
Inspiration also came from the R-hex, the most powerful running robot, based on the cockroach. Check it out, here:
Check bottom left for a nice video, especially near the end you see it running fast
More inspiration came from the polypropylene / carbon prosthetics used by amputee athletes, who easily outrun the fastest sprinters.
My bike - as I said I’m not a designer:
the “wheel” can be folded up [see top right in the picture]; which is not possible with ordinary foldable bicycles, so this opens up new perspectives.
The bike works, I have built a raw prototype. A real prototype would work very well.
It’s very fun to ride, and you can do more than ride: you can jump very nicely.
Also, if you want to start riding, you “jumpstart”, very nice and a big showelement.
Anyway, please COMMENT, then STEAL, please.
