NiMo ha scritto:How to make your bike thief-proof



Looks like Sir Clive Sinclair’s foldable A-Bike really inspired a lot of people out there to go compact. And taking the great inventor’s initiative one step further, designer Maciej Ojrzanowski decided to come up with a clever way to carry all of your bike add-ons with you safely and out of thieves’ reach. With all of your bike’s lighting, indicators and mudguards packed into a handy bag pack, the multi-purpose bike device lets you carry your bike valuables with you whenever you’re forced to leave your bike in a public parking space so that the thieves find nothing worth siphoning off on your ride. The bag is all quite handy as a, well, bag, and can carry your wallet, cellphone, and even food and clothes, which combined with the included toolbox and map holder, makes it a traveler’s best friend!

Ideal engineering is where comfort comes with versatility. Here is an example to demonstrate that stroke of perfection. Designed by Miss Hayoung Lee from University of Technology, Sydney, this bicycle pannier serves multiple utility function. It is often seen that even when one cares enough for nature the idea of riding a cycle becomes cumbersome when one has to carry load. To fight this problem here is one heaven of an idea for a bicycle pannier. This PakNgo pannier is stable and sturdy enough to hold your belongings when you ride a cycle with utmost safety. One can face the problem of not wanting to carry delicate items while cycling but the rigid form (polycarbonate) fixes the load more securely to the rack and protects their laptop, while multiple mounting points increase stability and security.







It is waterproof hence proving that it is weather resistant and it can be clipped right next to the wheel as spring mechanism is added to hold the rack firmly. While not riding a bike the pannier can be converted into a stroller or a simple sling-across-your-chest bag. The designs and colors so provided are catchy and aesthetically pleasing. Go green and travel using cycles whenever feasible and now there are more reasons than one to do that, namely PakNgo!

Foldable electric bike for city

Messaggio Da NiMo il Ven Nov 28, 2008 11:53 am

Grasshoper: Foldable electric bike for city commuters

Riding an electric bike is often a thrilling but juvenile experience. However, if your passion for portable bikes remain prolific, the ‘Grasshoper’ by David Gonçalves is yet another good-looking electric bike that will make your passion real fun! Designed especially for urban commuters, the Grasshoper is a foldable electric bike that users can carry as a trolley when not in use. Inspired by nature, the city bike is compact as it may be effortlessly folded, parked or recharged inside your home.

Design Status: The Grasshoper is a concept bike, displayed at the International Bicycle Design Competition.

Usability: Winner of the ‘merit prize’ in the 12th International Bicycle Design Competition - Taiwan 2008, the Grasshoper is the perfect bike for any city dweller. It is not just for adults, but its bendable seat and handle bar adjusts to accommodate the little riders as well. It’ll help in countering traffic congestion on jam-packed streets and highways in an urban environment.

Designer: David Gonçalves is an industrial designer based in Birmingham, United Kingdom. He is a Master of Science in Design and Transport with Distinction CAD and Modelling, Ergonomics and Packaging, Creative Studies, Design and technology, Professional Practice, Transport Design School of Art and Design from the Coventry University.

b_80 Unicycle

Messaggio Da NiMo il Dom Nov 30, 2008 10:54 am

"b_80: Unicycle with enhanced portability"
How could anyone not like a unicycle? The sight of a man trying to balance himself on the eccentric looking equipment is truly engaging. Unicycle by its very nature leaves little to be tinkered with and yet Mexican designer David Vargas wants to make a difference. His b_80 is a unicycle that wants to make popular this unique mode of transport. b_80 looks every bit the conventional ride but seeks to make difference in its design. By shifting the support point to directly below the center of the wheel, b_80 is easier to ride than the usual unicycles. And another important designing change is in terms of portability; this lightweight bike is foldable and ostensibly lighter. Bringing flexibility to the table, b_80 is designed as an effective means for transition between different modes of transportation. It seems cut out for the fast paced urban environment with less space for maneuvering.

Your Digital Tricycle

Messaggio Da NiMo il Lun Dic 01, 2008 4:25 pm

Try-Cycle: Your Digital Tricycle

Humberto Jimenez has designed a new vehicle that provides a novel way of handling the vehicle and interacting with the environment. This three-wheeler vehicle requires it users to be a pro on balancing thing. I say this because the turning and balancing act is undertaken with the help of an inclined control buttons located on the handle itself. Unlike the traditional bicycle, the riders will control the handle itself and I find it more convenient than this button thing with the try-cycle. The only thing I like about this concept of Humberto Jimenez is the LED that fits enough to be made use of at night.

Di-Cycle: Joy ride for land and water

How many of us have been fortunate enough to ride bike on water surface? I’d say none and you could present your own story to refute me. Anyhow this is about to change if GBO design’s Di-Cycle comes to life. Now Dicycles have been around for some time; wiki has a stub on it if you care to see. But I’m yet to see an actual dicycle that claims to run on water too. Di-Cycle, however, does precisely this. Designed in 2005 for or the Brabantse Spelen a Dutch design competition, the Di-Cycle brings together “sport and design.” Apparently, the designers wanted to create something that was perfect for Helmond. The roads and canals that run through the Dutch city are perfect for the Di-Cycle to show its prowess on either land or water. Seems great, one could just cycle on the road and along comes a waterway, splash, you continue merrily! Wonder if we’d see it any soon on roads, or maybe in canals. Another image follows.

The TRIX

Messaggio Da NiMo il Ven Dic 05, 2008 5:00 pm

The TRIX human-powered carving trike

The TRIX uses rack and pinion steering to offer a carving-like experience to human-powered trikes, removing the utilitarian feel of the flat turning arc of a rigid frame and replacing it with pure fun without removing the intrinsic cargo-carrying benefit of the three-wheeler. The steering also means a tighter turning circle and significantly improved manoeuvrability as it can slalom between obstacles and lean into curves like a motorcycle. As it is ideally suited to negotiate narrow, or congested streets, TRIX is ideal for city centre life and can be adapted to transport goods or become a space-age rickshaw with a single, front-seated passenger.
Yves Plattard’s design was chosen from amongst 400 concept submissions along the way to the grand prize. His initial submission was based around constructing his ideas using technical Lego, making dozens of sketches and conceptualising how he could solve what he calls “the leaning conundrum” using parallelogram principles - the whole frame puts pressure on the springs, allowing TRIX to turn into corners.
The first four pictures got him through to the second stage, for which 24 projects were selected. Yves then spent every night and weekend for a month working on a 70cmx40cmx35cm model.
Yves Plattard’s works for the ideal company to turn his concept into model form – using The Product Group’s extensive model-making facilities (CNC router, machine tools, spray booth) he got the model finished and sent in 4 parts, all packed in different small packs for safety, to Taiwan just 1 day before the deadline.
In addition to the prize of 10,000 Euros, Yves has won the interest and admiration of 5 organisations, all of whom have expressed interest in developing the concept, so he is going to be busy, not least because he relishes the freedom to use his skills and choose the constraint and the market and has resolved to participate in at least one competition per year.

XE Tricycle Bike

Messaggio Da NiMo il Mar Dic 23, 2008 11:12 pm

XE Tricycle Bike:
Exercise on the go!

Designer: Omer Sagiv



The very image of a tricycle revives childhood memories when I used to paddle my three-wheeled bike through the house. But riding a tricycle now and that too on the highway - Well sounds neat but fantastic! However, the new tricycle by Omer Sagiv is a bike design with a difference that has entirely changed my erroneous perception of a tricycle. Called the XE Tricycle Bike, the new vehicle is not just an electric bike, but it also works as an exercise-cycle. The users can charge the batteries while sweating out on the XE Tricycle that could later be used to power the bike. You cannot expect a better idea for keeping yourself fit without losing the pace of life.
Design Status:

The XE Tricycle Bike is a concept bike design that would be low-cost and easy companion to move on the road.

Usability:
The XE Tricycle Bike is not just an innovative bike design; it will also provide an eco-friendly ride that will help in sustaining the environment. It’ll be an ideal bike for city commuters who need not spare extra time for sweating out in the gym, as they would be able to do their routine exercises on the go with this bike.

Monociclo

Messaggio Da NiMo il Sab Gen 03, 2009 2:05 pm

Monociclo:
La prima bicicletta bilanciata al mondo
Il designer Harald Palma ha disegnato un monociclo rivoluzionario, riuscendo a coniugare semplicità, leggerezza, trasportabilità e sicurezza di guida. Certo la sicurezza di guida è data da un ingegnoso sistema di giroscopi e accellerometri che permettono al conducente di controllare il mezzo attraverso l’equilibrio del corpo. Mentre il pilota si appoggia in avanti, dà slancio alla bicicletta, mentre mettendo il peso all’indietro richiede al mezzo un rallentamento. Inoltre il monociclo ha un sistema di pedalata assistita elettrica che aiuta il conducente nella motorizzazione del mezzo e ne tratti più faticosi. Il Monociclo è un mezzo cittadino utile per movimenti a breve e medio raggio, comodo da trasportare a mano e si parcheggia in poco spazio. Il motore elettrico di supporto alla pedalata, offre al conducente un valido aiuto.
Come al solito questo è solo un concept e non è acquistabile... almeno per ora.

Ergonomics Recumbent Bicycle

Messaggio Da NiMo il Ven Gen 09, 2009 2:41 pm

"Ergonomics meets comfort in Zurlinden’s Recumbent Bicycle"
For the uninitiated recumbent bicycles can be an intriguing phenomenon. The notion is quite unconventional. Recumbent bicycles seek to make biking a little less haranguing by placing the rider in a reclining position. This has implications for the comfort as the rider is happily placed in a position that enables better distribution of his weight; better than conventional upright bikes of course. Mathew Zurlinden from Detroit is a recent graduate and has put up some nice designs on his page here. Among the designs, is a good looking recumbent bike. Flashy and comfy are the two adjectives that comes to mind when one looks at the design. The red Recumbent Bicycle has a very relaxing-looking seat and touts a light weight molded CRE frame. Hubless wheels look extraordinary and the bike features Infina-Gear CVT Transmission. The latter feature is described in detail as something that would eliminate physical changing of gears and lead to easier uphill travels as well as higher speeds. The system also translates into very little maintenance. Clearly this Recumbent Bicycle is cut out for ease and would easily transform biking into a little less sweaty job. This in itself should be enough to lead to an early fruition of the concept.

Versabikes

Messaggio Da NiMo il Ven Gen 23, 2009 11:54 am

"Versabikes: Eco-friendly and adaptable"

Conventional bikes are already quite sustainable as far as their usability and utility is concerned. But, frame size might make you dispense them off as all users don’t have similar heights. The problem begins when a cyclist needs to resell his/her bike, but can’t find anyone because of the frame size. So how can a bike somehow adapt or grow with a user or multiple users? Nathan Durflinger addresses this difficulty with his unique bike design.
The final design is eco-friendly and adjusts to a range of different user heights. Pieces of finished plywood, polycarbonate, or machined aluminum can be used in fabricating one. The frame will accept all standard bike hardware found at most bike shops. The frame of the bike has been designed to expand out or contract in motion. The bike can come in two different sizes: One that will “grow” with a child who has started learning to ride and another for teens and adults. The kids version with an inseam between 20″-27″ fits any child and the adult version having an inseam between 27″-34″ would fit anybody.
So, the bike can be shared by a couple, a family or can be passed on to another user after the first user is done with it. In case you’ve made up your mind to dump this bike, the materials and parts could be recycled or reused.

Folding Commuter bike

Messaggio Da NiMo il Ven Gen 30, 2009 10:43 am

"Folding Commuter bike by Rick Marland"

The bike's designed around its lock, which becomes a handle when the bike's folded. The lock's big enough to go around a lamppost and if the locks broken the bike can't be ridden away because the locks additional purpose is to hold the bike together. (Lock can rotate meaning it can lock to horizontal/vertical rails).
The seat and handle bars are fully adjustable in all directions (adjusts to fit most adults), and use a spring-loaded geared quick-release to easily adjust/Fold bike.
The bike wheels have puncture resistant/solid tyres, with dual suspension on single sided swing-arms, which give a slim folded profile (handlebars also fold in). The swing arms have a locking catch system for the various luggage/rack options, luggage can remain locked on the bike when it's folded and the whole bike can easily be wheeled around with the lock/handle.
The bike's easy to maintain with its low maintenance shaft drive and 8speed hub gearing, it also uses hydraulic discs, all cables are internally routed. The built in lights are auto on/off (with override switch) and the battery can be charged in the bike, or removed.

IziBi Folding Bike
by Renato Gschwend
When we saw IziBi for the first time in our inbox, we really like it. IziBi is a compact, stylish and portable mountain bicycle which is specially designed for extremists with single rear and front suspension. The frame is made of a reinforced carbon fiber polymer and the direct drive mechanism is made of aluminum alloy which is not only strong but also reduces the maintenance expenses. You will be able to fold the bicycle entirely by simply pressing the top and bottom switches on the frame and the front half slides in half of the bicycle. You can swing the back wheel around by detaching the latch below the seat and meet up with the front transforming into a compact and neat fold.

"sTrike: Sustainable Transport Vehicle by Stefano Marchetto"

This new innovative concept design by the Milan based Italian Industrial Design student Stefano Marchetto can be said to be a nice practical thought. The name given to this ecologically sustainable transport vehicle is called sTrike and just like the name it is surely striking. In these times when everyone is fighting for the parking space, this practical three wheel concept takes care of lot of these problems. The frontal movement of the vehicle is with the help of the pedals just as in bicycle and the cocoon design on top ensures that the rider is safe in case of a collision. Thus it’s a safe and environment friendly city transportation vehicle.

"Apple Bicycle for a green ride with all Apple gadgetry"
We have already covered a number of portable bike designs in the past, but the one that I am posting right now is perhaps one of the most unique bike concepts we have covered lately.
Inspired by the uniqueness and popularity of the Apple products, designer Jake Foley has come up with an innovative bike that will incorporate latest technology in a neat and clean design. Essentially intended for the young urban bike riders, who need technologically sound transportation to move around, the Apple bicycle includes an iPod scroll wheel to place or possibly charge the PMPs, laptop case for notebook, and magnetic wheels to make commuting quick and effortless.
Powered by hydraulic fluids, the bike doesn’t require chains, and easily folds into a compact size to be carried inside a building. The Apple bicycle is truly a stylish vehicle that not only incorporates modern technology but also helps the commuters play their part to support the eco drive going on across the world.

Zweistil

Messaggio Da NiMo il Sab Mag 23, 2009 9:50 pm

"Zweistil: Space-shifting bike plies well on all roads"
Designed by Stefan Wallmann, the “Zweistil” is essentially a human powered vehicle that can be shape-shifted from an ordinary to a recumbent bicycle while driving. Thereby it not just offers the comfort and visibility of a city bike, but also provides a fast and ergonomic means of transportation for the countryside. The concept aims for daily commuters with distances between 15km and 30+km that need a vehicle suitable for both distance and city traveling. Additionally equipped with a battery and hub-motor, the concept offers incentives to change to environmentally-friendly transportation while relieving city traffic and having a relaxed journey. Check out the video to see the bike in motion after the jump.
The frame can be shifted from high to low by simply shifting the rider’s weight (leaning backwards), after he or she pushes a lever to unlock the frame, while the frame geometry gets fixed again by releasing the lever. Since the frame mechanism is adjusted to the rider’s weight, this technique also works from the low to the high position, by simply leaning forward. All this can be done during the ride, without the need of stopping. The Zweistil is simply a new interpretation of what a bicycle could be today.
About the designer:
Stefan Wallmann is an Industrial Designer currently living and working as a freelance designer in Hamburg, Germany.

"Innovative Bicycle Security system doubles as billboard"
With no proper licensing and unavailability of apt bicycle parking slots, bike thefts have become a common snag nowadays. However, designer Grant Howarth has popped up with an innovative design called ‘Bicycle Security’ that not just provides a proper parking place for your bikes but keeps them safe from burglars and other roadside damages as well. A recent entry at the RSA Design Directions Competition, the modular bike security system, by the Scottish designer protects all quick release components, including the seat and wheels. Enveloping the bike steadily in the curved surface, the security system prevents the bike from rolling back by putting the rear wheel into a tight groove. The bike security can be located in dense spaces that ideally suit urban environments.
Moreover, the security unit is capable of compensating its production cost within 3 years, as it can be used as a billboard for displaying commercial advertisements.

J-bike

"J-bike, a bicycle with a cordial portability clause"

She is hot, isn’t she? We have seen the fold-up bikes before, and we really appreciate their ease of portability while on the go. If you like the idea of carrying your bicycle under you arm, the j-bike looks to be a trendy solution.
Michael Soluyanov has designed the j-bike as a part of his degree project, which has received the recommendation of the department to participate in the upcoming design contests. When in normal condition, the j-bike measures 1600mm in length, which is reduced to 860mm when folded. Even the width is reduced significantly from 560mm to 340mm. The thing I like about this bike the most is its stylish make. Folding bicycles are getting quite popular with designers these days, and we simply love it.
