Compact Collapsible Bicycles

The Gianluca Sada Bike Design Can Be Doubled Over Like an Umbrella

— May 9, 2014 — Eco
The Gianluca Sada bicycle solves many of the problems of active city dwellers. While bikes typically take up quite a bit of space in the home, this particular cycle can be folded up much like an umbrella, making it easy to store.

Although structured much like a standard bicycle with 26" wheels, the rings are actually detachable. Once removed, the entire transport device doubles over, enabling it to shrink in size to the point where it can be placed in any small corner.

Accessibility is central to this Sada project. As it can be transported with ease, a new cadre of shoppers will be turned on to the cycle, especially those that beforehand could not house the two-wheeler.
