The Bicymple is a bike without a chain that is connected by a straight frame, and can be steered from the rear or the front, perfect for riders making tight turns and twists.

The bicymple is a concept bicycle design developed by Washington-based studio Scalyfish Designs that hopes to evolve the standard bike while adhering to the basic principles of simplicity, functionality, and excitement. Core77 reports that it has a rear-steering option for tight turns and “crab riding.”

The chain has been removed, reducing the number of moving parts and the overall complexity. A direct-drive, freewheeling hub joins the crank arm axis with the rear-wheel axis, shortening the wheelbase and minimizing the design. The lightweight and stylish bike is described as “comfortable, easy to ride, and brilliantly simple to maintain.” Its ultra-compact design enables the rider to get it in and out of tight spaces like stairwells, hallways, and fire escapes. Check out the video below to see the bike in action:
