The Transport Commuter Bike Reinvents The Wheel ... By Adding It  A Trunk!
Transport” is a bicycle concept project sponsored by SRAM and targeted to explore innovation opportunities for commuter bikes – also check the Carbon Fiber Electric Motor Bike and the Bedrock Handlebar Bag.

The Transport Bike literally reinvents the wheel and transforms it into a storage truck which can easily carry a classic messenger bag or a backpack filled with gear you’ll need through the day. With all the added functionality the bike only weights 25 lbs (that’s less than 12 kg), just as any average bike on the street.

I am not sure if the concept will ever make it to the consumer market, but , given the coolness of the idea and the bike’s great look, I really hope one day we’ll see the Transport on the streets. What’s your take on the Transport Commuter Bike? Let’s hear you in the comments.

HMK 561 - New Carbon Fiber Electric Motorbike Concept by Ralf Kittmann
Yanko design artist Ralf Kittmann shares a cool electric motorbike concept – also check other cool concept gear.
The HMK 561 is a carbon fiber bike designed on an innovative concept: the electrical power sits inside the carbon frame which, due to it’s high electrical conductibility, also serves as power distribution network.

The HMK 561 uses a “counter-turning axle in lieu of gears and chains“, axle which transfers power to the the wheel by direct friction (the axle passes between the two rims and, by it’s cylindrical movement, turns the wheels allowing the bike to advance).

This is a very nice electrical bike concept. The fact that there’s already an working prototype built on this concept assures me on it’s feasibility and allows me to hope to see this beauty on the streets someday.
