ECO // 07 – Compactable Urban Bicycle
Whoever came up with this bicycle concept decided to reinvent the wheel. This bicycle can be disassembled completely. Even the wheels fold up. The secret is in the wheels. Each wheel consists of 6 modules that can be separated and folded up to save up space.This is a great option for transporting your bike. For example if you’re moving to another city, you won’t have to look like a crazy person with the bike tied to the roof of your car. You can just fold it up and put it in the trunk. It’s also a great solution for people who like taking their bicycles on vacation. Since it’s so compact you can just take it on a plane in a suitcase.
This new mini-bicycle is perfect for people who appreciate comfort and mobility. This bicycle is shaped like the letter “X” and can be folded up when needed. The folding is done in 6 easy steps thanks to the quick-release skewer mechanism. Another prominent detail that we’d like to mention is that this bike, unlike most bikes, doesn’t use chains or cables. You heard it tight, no chains.
It’s no secret to cyclists that the most easily broken part of the bicycle is the chain. That’s the first detail that usually needs fixing or replacing. Well, with the X Bike you can forget about it, no more chains. This bicycle is also health conscious. It has a specially designed prostatitis preventing seat.
Backpack Bicycle by Chang Ting Jen
If you love bicycling and want to take your bike with you everywhere you go, this Backpack Bicycle is for you. You literally can’t get more compact that this. The bicycle weighs about 5 kilograms, which isn’t that much when you think about. The designer also says that it might become lighter as the metal parts can be replaced by plastic ones.
The Backpack bicycle was made to suit the needs of people who live in the city but like to explore. It’s very compact, so you can easily take it with you as a backpack when using public transportation, but once you’re outside you can unfold it and you’re ready to cycle. It’s also a great idea for those who don’t want to leave their bikes chained on the street when they’re out and about, or need to go to the mall.

You can use it to store a change of clothing if you work at a place that has a uniform.
You can even put a pair of changing shoes in there, so you can wear comfy sneakers while you’re bicycling and change into your stylish office shoes when you get to work. The bicycle is also a bit of a transformer. It can be folded up to resemble a shopping cart, so you can wheel it around with you in the supermarket and use it to carry your produce.

For example, when you’re in the city and in a rush you’d use the normal upright position. It’s optimal for speed and getting you from point A to B as quickly and efficiently as possible. It also gives you more control over the bike it case you need to ride through some traffic.But if you want a relaxing ride in the park or you’ve gotten out of the city and into the countryside and want have a leisurely ride and enjoy the view you’d be much more comfortable in the reclining position. The best part is that you don’t even have to get off the bike to switch modes. You just push a lever and lean forward or backwards depending what mode you’d like your bicycle to be in.
