Amazing Folding Bike01st Oct' 2009,
Mexican industrial designer Victor M. Aleman has developed a concept fully collapsible, folding bicycle. It is an urban cycle that can be toned down to save space when not in use. The design consists of 2 systems: Wheel folding system & Bike Structure System.
Wheel folding system :The Wheel is composed of six modules, each one has a double pivot in the joints, this allows the wheel to fold and become smaller, the spokes are contained in the inner structure of the wheel, when you unfold the system, the spokes rotate to the center of the mechanism where it attaches to the center of the wheel.
Bike Structure System :The double triangle structure is composed of expandable modules, each one collapses to a smaller dimension and then this modules aligns with the rotation of the axis in the joint of the structure. A special X aligns all the modules to their position.
