Jruiter's Inner City Bike: Is It Still A Bicycle?

Jruiter's Inner City Bike: Is It Still A Bicycle?
culture

The Inner City Bike is a concept design by Jruiter that eliminates the need for a bike chain and reduces the structure of the frame, causing us to rethink a bicycle's fundamental design.

In the pursuit of reducing materials and simplifying designed objects, how much can you take away before it’s a completely new object?

When we think of a bicycle, we assume that it is composed of two wheels, a frame, a chain, handle bars, pedals, and sometimes a breaking mechanism.

The Inner City Bike makes us reconsider that notion. A concept design by Jruiter, it eliminates the need for a bike chain and reduces the structure of the bike frame. It’s designed for inner city biking, where bicycling can be more about “fashion and culture than speed and performance.”
