Interesting: Another New Kickstarter Bicycle Design

“It’s not easy to reinvent the bicycle, and it took architects Martin Angelov and Mihail Klenov five years–the first time they did it.” The “Halfbike” first conceived by the duo in 2009 has recently had its second kickstarter success as the updated “Halfbike II”.263872_81_35911_fcIAMmzpj

“[The Halfbike II is] a vehicle that trains your balance and reflexes in a new way. Not only on a physical level but it also affects the way you percei ve movement and enhances your senses. The standing rider position is essential…. It brings you closer to natural walking and it’s the only way to control the vehicle with your whole body and not just your hands. Halfbike is a sort of an extension to the body that allows a smooth and intuitive ride.”
