52 Examples of Modern Bicycles

From Articulating Ski Bikes to Shock-Absorbant Wooden Bikes

— November 20, 2015 — Autos
The human-powered bike has undergone various makeovers since its first development, which has resulted in a line of modern bicycles. Still requiring a human driver, these single-track vehicles include contemporary upgrades un-thought of when the bike was first invented.

Those who live in the city are accustom to the popularity of the bicycle. To make the vehicle more apartment-friendly, the slim Runwell bike and the foldable Ultra X both display frames that can be easily stored into small spaces. These modern bicycles also include hi-tech innovations such as the Social Bike, which shares cycling stats on social media while the Ginzvelo is a hybrid eco bike that can travel 100 miles on a single charge.

Moreover, modern bicycles also offer stylish motorbikes such as the Ariel Rider eBikes and the OTO Cycles.
