Cool Bike Design

This is a great idea- a tricycle that becomes a bicycle when you cycle faster. Sounds a bit screwy, but the design is aimed at kids (and adults) who are learning to ride a bike for the first time. The tricycle design allows them to just hop on and start riding while the ingenious concept of the rear wheels slowly coming together to form a single wheel means that they can go at their own speed and not have to worry about Mum or Dad holding onto the back of the saddle as they peddle. If they start to feel a bit unsteady all they have to do is slow down a little and the bike will return to the stable tricycle formation. Manufacturers are already interested in the concept so expect to see this in the shops before long. Posted by Hello
