This is the coolest bicycle I’ve ever seen… “Zero Bike” is designed by Makota Makita and Hiroshi Tsuzaki from Tokyo, Japan. The bike is a hubless, spokeless and very lightweight bicycle powered by cranking magnetic pedals which rotate the tires suspended between other magnets. It has won a design excellence award by the Industrial Design Society of America.
Some might say where the hell did you find this bike? Well I was doing some research on hubless wheel technology. And I came to very interesting sites, being this bicycle one of them. Hubless wheels are kind of like “reinventing the wheel”. Dominique Mottas, is the name of the French guy who reinvented and patented the wheel. For the ones who are still asking what the fuck is a hubless wheel, here is a picture that explains everything. (Not the girl! Look at the wheel damnit!) Check out this site for some more info how these wheels work.
Talking about hubless… Check out this “Hubless Monster” made by Amen Motorsports. This is the first motorcycle with dual hubless wheels. Also it has the largest motorcycle tire in the world. (360 mm) Another record is the wheel diameter. 23 inches… The company has some pretty slick designs. Check out their web pages.
