The Bicymple


A friend passed me a link to this Kickstarter project. Perhaps because it has something to do with cycling.

The bicymple has no chain. A very short wheelbase. A direct-drive, freewheeling hub. It looks a bit like two unicycles fused together by two parallel top tubes although it apparently is far closer to a bicycle ride than a unicycle ride. The frame and forks are CroMo Steel. There is also an optional rear-steer mode.

The Kickstarter goal was $20,000 and Josh Bechtel has already raised over $45,000 for the project.

Interesting design.

Not that anyone should be surprised, but there is a website dedicated to bicycle design. Some really interesting machines on their site. The bicycle can be reinvented.
