designer's own words:"
main idea : transport & storage.
boxycle has all the benefits and convenience of folding bicycle for urban (& combined public) transport, but with some extra usability :
1. storage space - boxycle has two compartements and one device (iPod etc) holder - user can bring (and charge) their notebook and other devices , store ‘clean’ activity clothing while riding, and store ‘sweaty’ riding clothes while working - It is also possible to charge some electronic devices while riding (with common generator hubs, such as shimano DH-3N71), has some extra safety with lights
2. practicality - the body can also function as mud guard and added impact safety - comfort bike type ergonomics with very low stand over top tube - universal standard wheels, drive train and most of the control parts. - easy to maneuver due to compact size but not to small so it still has normal riding characteristics - adjustable seat height and handlebar reach
3. styling - boxy, retro, friendly. - form follows function (and fun)
4. producible - boxycle is simple to produce with current manufacturing and material technology.
