That Yellow Bike Survived a Train Hit

Maybe. You never know. It’s called the “24/7 City Pedelec” and it’s hard as Wolverine. It’s components are made for daily heavy use and “permanently changing users.” Customized for long life, low maintenance, and usability. What’s that mean, really? I can use it good. Real good. Anyway, it’s compact frame structure guards against vandalism (not paint, but bashing,) and wearing out from stuff like nature. No dangly bits stick out. Yellow much?

The insides are all new. Technology, and stuff. Check it out: chains, shifting gears, and breaks are replaced with these crazy components: cardan drive, centrifugal gear unit, and hydraulic breaks.

And oh wow, check it out also: modular. The modular frame structure allows for upgrades. Start with the basic model, upgrade to better parts one-by-one. You’ll be hanging out with those fixed-gear clown-shoes in no time!

    this looks great, but heavy.. and im concerned about the frame getting all scratched up over time… other than that, great upgrade of the bicycle

    Where is the motor?

    What self respecting bicycle doesn’t have one?

    Cardan? Have my doubtsd about that!

    So, basically, this is a shaft-driven bicycle? Why not push it as the first mass-market hydraulic bicycle? Both are potentially very durable, but a hydraulic drive is potentially more efficient than a shaft.

    Besides, it’s not like he has any technical drawings that I’m aware of. I mean, the form is very appealing to be sure, but the concept is half-baked.

    weight should be no problem for pedelecs. i would suggest magnesium thixomoulding for a lighter (but solid) frame structure anyways. and a kevlar belt drive.. but who knows, maybe there´s just a chain drive inside!

    love the clean and functional design. especially the basket. never seen a step-through frame like that!! most designers spend their time on top tube styling

    Note: “hydraulic breaks” should be “hydraulic brakes.” Once an editor, always an editor…
