Adjustable Bicycle Can Morph And Grow With You

Adjustable Bicycle Can Morph And Grow With You

The slot-and-slide frame called the NoBike is made to adjust easily to the rider's height

Italian design studio DynaLab has unveiled NoBike, a bike which challenges the traditional one-size-fits-all design and lets users easily adjust all parameters. While traditional bikes are made up of tubes welded together, NoBike is constructed using laser-cut, 4mm thick, flat aluminum slabs. The triangular forms are connected by three aluminum joints and cylinder spaces to ensure sturdiness. Thanks to this design feature, the frame can be adjusted to suit individual needs of each rider. The slot-and-slide mechanism allows for the adjustment of the saddle to handlebar distance by 80cm, depending on user’s height and preferences, allowing for a comfortable ride for anyone who is between 5.2 to 6.5 feet tall. The complete bike weighs 14 kilos.

Aesthetically, the bike can be further personalized with four different color frames: white, black, red and neutral. Each bike will also have a unique serial number engraved onto the frame and kept in Dynalab’s log.

NoBike is currently raising funds on Kickstarter, with bids for complete bikes starting at EUR999 with shipping estimated at June this year. After the campaign is over, the bike will retail for EUR1,400. DynaLab is also working on an electric reiteration of the project which is set to hit the stores by the end of the year.
