    that last bike must be very expensive because of all the shoes eheh :) but still very nice

  5. John A. Ardelli

    Apparently, the guy who designed that last one couldn’t make up his mind whether he wanted to go for a walk or a ride… :P

    I think my favorite here is the Plus Bicycle; it’s about time bikes CAME with the lights the law requires for night riding… ;)

  6. alan

    thanks – cool bikes
    the plus bike John likes has a serious weak spot at the + i think. Lots of stress there.

  7. Andi

    Nice article. I especially like the clean lines of the Plus bike.
    We did a similar article too with 2 other bikes not mentioned here:

  8. Pavan Kumar

    and others on the site (couch bike, hula bike, etc.)

  10. female model

    I want the bikes, they can do wonders with nanotubs now..

  11. ntopics

    All these bikes are cool. My favorite is the
    Gismo Rocket Powered Bicycle, but its probably
    out of my price range. I may be able to afford the
    Oryx Bicycle Concept. What a great list of bikes.

    thanks from tony

  12. Flamejob

    You forgot the Brompton! Crazy good design, customizable, super efficient and every day useable.

    Ooh… And the Pashley Guvnor, awesomly cool!

  13. jack

    @ alan:

    Nope. It’s just simply a basic, symmetrical context of a cantilevered beam, which yes, will experience stress (All rigid materials do) but, given the closeness of the seat tube to the joint, and size of the tube diameter in general, the stress won’t be nearly enough to cause concern. To more experienced eyes it’s evident they’ve already taken necessary engineering precautions.

  14. Vesta
