    How Cool this bike(the above)! This bike which can be folded completely into the space of the wheel's 26in circumference. Cool! By student Dominic Hargreaves. Named the Contortionist.
    The 24-year-old, from Battersea, London, said he wanted to create a decent folding bike after the one he was using collapsed.
    "I couldn't find a folding bicycle I liked," he added.
    "I wanted something that could take a bit of punishment and that you could have fun with.
    "So I made one myself."

    Now Hargreaves is contacting with various manufacturers and hopes to get this bike into production soon.

    Austrian Paul Kweton has designed the Ring-O-Star bike cup holder. The silicon ring attaches to a bar-end via an aluminum expanding bolt, then place your coffee inside the ring. Is it a good idea or bad idea? Maybe some bloggers will consider it is dangerous, but I love this design.

    The BauBike is inspired by Bauhaus design. It is constructed around the geometric shape of the square and the equilateral triangle. The design is stripped down to clean lines and raw material. The open-end piece above the back wheel, offers the possibility to customize the function of the bike to whatever need you may have. The different accessories can be placed in the tube and can easily be changed if needed. The design follows a set of formal rules, limiting the geometry to straight lines in a pattern of 60 and 90 degree angles in proportions following the principle of the golden section.

    The solar human hybrid is a street legal quadricycle powered by solar electric motor. It has room for four people and even a spot for groceries and a dog. This project was launched as fourteen year old David Dixon's 8th grade project for the Novato Charter School.
    Design goals:
    A vehicle with excellent pedaling performance;
    An efficient electric motor assist;
    A street legal vehicle;
    New generation battery technology; and Solar charging.
    The vehicle powered by a 24-volt motor is good for 1 horsepower, and a top speed limited 14 mph. Power comes from GreenSaver Silicone Gel Cell batteries fed by 20-watt solar panels. The batteries also run the vehicle¡¯s iPod dock - gotta have tunes - GPS unit and the lights. It costs $6,400 to build, but most of that can be attributed to the cost of the ZEM. They picked it up on eBay for $5,000.

    If you love Mercedes-Benz? For the luxurious city cruisers! The latest collection of pushbikes this week by the automaker is yet another winner. There are two folding options - fully folded which is a very small package, while the ¡°shuttle¡± position allows the bike to be pushed and steered making it ideal for easy carriage using public transport. This folding option allows you to take your bike wherever you go. When completely folded down, the Mercedes-Benz Foldingbike requires little space. In this position, it only measures 80x80x35 cm, enabling it to be packed away in the supplied high-quality carrying bag. The bike can also be easily stowed in a car trunk, camper van and office. Its aluminum frame has a suspension travel of 40 mm at both front and rear, as well as a Shimano 8-speed derailleur gear and disc brakes provide a high level of safety. Protective metal cover and a variable luggage rack make this bike ideal for daily use.

    I love this folding bike, it is a normal size bike, features with 'big'(26") wheels and automatic folding mechanism that requires no tools or removal of parts to folds in seconds. "The folded package is just 102cm(H) x27cm(W) x 66cm(L) and weighs 14.7kg. If you take the wheels off it will even fit in a suitcase." Designed and created by Mark Sanders.
    "iF Mode($2,579) avoids oily chains, complex tube with hidden dirt traps and the clutter of traditional bicycle features. It can be used by city commuters who do not want to change their appearance into ¡®bicycle warriors¡¯ and may use public transport or their car for some of the journey. IF Mode looks at home folded up on a smart subway train or in an office, just like a sleek mp3 player or other well designed accessory in your life. It also performs on the street like any lightweight well balanced full size bike."
