The Smart City Cycle is great for biking in the city or even to run some daily errands. Designed by Yo-Hwan Kim, the futuristic bicycle features a clean, refreshing look that's shaped a lot like the exercise bikes at the gym.

Yo-Hwan Kim's considerate design targets eco-friendly individuals and city dwellers that may want to avoid driving whenever possible. Although biking surely saves on fuel, certain tasks like grocery shopping can be a hassle with a bike. The design takes these daily chores into account and incorporates an extra hidden compressed compartment in the back wheel. Once expanded, the back wheel becomes a storage device and the bike transforms into a tricycle.

Whether it's for daily commutes or running errands, the Smart City Cycle is a convenient way to carry heavy loads like laptops and briefcases as well as satisfy spontaneous shopping needs.
