Camper Bike is a house on bike wheels


Kevin Cyr‘s pedal powered recreational vehicle would be fit for camping, if you could manage navigating the poorly laid camping roads while pedaling a three-wheeler that carries a tiny home. But why worry when you can simply stop the RV wherever you want and call it a day. Cyr’s Camper Bike is a standalone sculptural piece not destined for production.

Bike lock pole-climbs with the bike, hopefully keeps thieves at bay


Lock or no lock, bikes are easy target for thieves. This lock, with its skateboard wheels could be a deterrent to would-be thieves. The user needs to wrap the lock around a pole, and engage it; the lock’s metal frame, skateboard wheels and the electric motor then take over the job. As soon as the remote control is pushed, the lock hoists the bike up a pole, taking it out of the reach of potential wrongdoers. Clearly, it isn’t a pragmatic solution, but a creative one and worth watching anyway.

Yamaha wraps up concept bike in leather

At the Cologne Bike Show, Yamaha unveiled its VMax concept bike. The one-off motorcycle was created in collaboration with fashion house Hermes. The idea was to “Reinforce the sculptural lines of this unique object and underline its emotional power.” Hermes draped the bike in leather, covering every non-mechanical part of the bike in Skipper buffalo leather. Brushed aluminium mirrors, meter case and exhaust gave the finishing touches. With all that leather and craftsmanship gone into its creation, the bike had a cost of $32000. Yamaha and Hermes do not intend to create a prodcution version, and this will remain a one-off bike.

Ville bike is designed especially for grocery shopping sprees

Driving to the grocery store, walking to the grocery store, pushing the shopping cart, carrying the bags to the car, driving back.

The ingenious idea of mating a shopping cart and a bike comes from designer Hyuk Jae Chang and was the winner of a bronze at the Idea design awards.
