Popular Swedish furniture brand Ikea is stepping into the realm of vehicle design with a conceptual bicycle frame that will offer chainless mobility thanks to a maintenance-free design. The bike is engineered to require minimal tune up from the consumer while still operating at a optimal functionality for a smooth and cost-effective ride.

The Ikea Sladda bike is designed for consumers seeking a ride that requires minimal if no tune up at all, with a quality built frame. The frame opts for a chainless design that instead relies on a drive belt that won't rust or wear down for up to 15,000-kilometres. In addition, the bicycle contains a simplistic frame, rubber wheels and attachable accessories such as a basket, rack and cart.
