lunartic hub less bikeCheck out this futuristic looking bike…this news comes from Yanko Design and from designer Luke Douglas…this odd looking bike was a submission for the James Dyson Awards which is a design award for something that solves a problem, pretty simple.  Some interesting things about this bike is that a combination of different wheel sizes, a toothed belt drive and hub-less rear wheel.  The selling point of this bike is that the rear wheel creates a gyroscopic effect of a large wheel which aids in speed and more road surface contact adding to stability…the small front wheel is said to enhance maneuverability….check out the video of the prototype…i’ll keep my fixed gear tho.
