Halfbike

kolelinia halfbike by martin angelov

A project made for the international competition “Seoul Cycle Design Competition” organized by Designboom and the Seoul Design Foundation. It was chosen among the 462 shortlisted projects from more than 3078 participants in the competition.

HALFBIKE is an attempt for drawing on new meaning to the understanding of what a classical bicycle is, suggesting a new experience in urban transportation. The result is an extremely compact and a rather-cheap bike. The low cost is an inherited function of the bike’s small dimensions and the usage of very few typical bike-parts for its construction. Thus the bike is both suitable for city bike sharing systems and for users with smaller budgets. The short horizontal distance between the handle-bar and pedal’s axis makes a standing body position quite comfortable and creates the illusion of jogging on pedals. It also helps breathing better.
