boxycle by bismo joyodiharjo from indonesia
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
- 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
- boxy, retro, friendly.
- form follows function (and fun)
- boxycle is simple to produce with current manufacturing and material technology.
