Mind-Blowing Concept Bikes, Two Wheels Have Never Looked So Good

The bike was invented back in the 19th century and has remained pretty true to its roots.  That all changes with these incredible concept bikes.  You may never look at a bike the same way.  Some of these are ready for mass production but others, well they are a lil’ out there but STILL fun to look at.  Take a look and let us know which ones are your favorites in the comment section below.

Nulla: Ultramodern Spokeless Bike

Nulla: Ultramodern Spokeless Bike

Nulla means “nothing” in Italian, and though this bicycle is closer to “nothing” than most, it’s still a whole lot of something. Like the minimalist theft-proof bicycle by Chris Boardman, the Nulla has no hubs or chain drive for perhaps the sleekest, most futuristic look yet.

Collapsible Bike Concept

Collapsible Bike Concept

Portability is key when it comes to the bikes of the future, and concept designers are finding incredibly creative ways to make bikes light and collapsible. This design not only breaks down into a small package, but also provides storage space in the form of a bag positioned between the wheels.

Minimalist Theft-Proof Computer-Aided Bicycle

Minimalist Theft-Proof Computer-Aided Bicycle

With spokeless wheels designed to eliminate wind drag, tires that can’t be punctured, no visible chain and a minimalist frame, this bicycle is a definite departure from old school designs.. This is definitely a bike of the future.

Laptop-Charging Bike Concept

Laptop-Charging Bike Concept

It’s probably the boxiest and least aerodynamic bicycle concept, but the most interesting part of this strange design has nothing to do with looks. This electric bicycle has a docking station for your laptop, charged by the bike’s battery as you ride.

Incredible Folding Backback Bicycle

Incredible Folding Backback Bicycle

The Bergmonch folding backpack bicycle eliminates the problem of terrain that has to be negotiated on foot, not only is it small and lightweight, it folds perfectly onto itself in less than two minutes in a convenient configuration.

Solar Powered Electric Bike

Solar Powered Electric Bike

Lazy Cycle Sol owners can glide up effortlessly using solar power instead of muscle power. This electric bicycle has a roof that both protects the rider from the sun and rain and collects solar energy.

Bizarre Di-Cycle

Bizarre Di-Cycle

Designed to carry the rider over both land and water, this strange bicycle concept was designed especially for the city of Helmond in the Netherlands, which has as many canals as it does roads.

All-Weather Bicycle Design

All-Weather Bicycle Design

All-weather bicycle concepts aren’t entirely new, but they’ve always been rather clunky and unrealistic until now. This bicycle concept features a transparent roof that can protect against precipitation.

Grasshopper: Folding Electric Bike

Grasshopper: Folding Electric Bike

Naturally, some intrepid designers have taken folding bicycles to the next level by making them electric. Grasshopper design not only gets you to and fro, but can also become a stationary exercise bike and even generates and stores the energy you produce when pedaling.

Locust Flexible Folding Bicycle

Locust Flexible Folding Bicycle

With its large circular frame, the Locust folds in a way that most other portable, collapsible bikes don’t. It is designed by Josef Cardek.
