Not only does it look good but its a great way to save space when you’re not using your bike, presenting the compact-able Urban Bicycle designed by Victor M. Aleman.
The Wheel is composed by six modules, each one has a double pivot in the joints, allowing them to fold and become smaller. The spokes are contained in the inner structure of the wheel and when you unfold the system, the spokes rotate to the center of the mechanism where it is attached to the center of the wheel.The double triangular structure is composed by expandable modules, each collapses to a smaller dimension. These modules are then aligned by the rotation of the axis in the joint of the structure. A very complex and well thought out design.
