nobike is the slot-and-slide bicycle frame that adjusts to your size


created by dynalab, the nobike rethings traditional bike production methods to create a special bicycle—one that fits aptly to the size and style of individual riders. where most standard bicycle frames are constructed by metal tubes welded together, the nobike sports a body made of four laser cut triangular forms made of aluminum, slotted together by three joints with cyclinder spacers. by refraining from welding the tubes together, the rider can alter the size and shape of the frame perfectly to their height and needs simply by adjusting the slots found on the the aluminium triangles.

where normal bicycles use metal tubes welded together, nobike uses slot-and-slide aluminium triangles

suited to riders between 160 and 200 CM, the slot-and-slide mechanism grants the the nobike 80 CM worth of vertical movement, making it ergonomically suitable for men, women, adolescents and adults alike. riders can adjust the slots according to their height and needs, meaning the model can be ergonomically tailored to the exact height of an individual. aesthetically, the bike can be customized by purchasable wraps, which cover the  iconic aluminium frame in a color of your choice, even giving the rider the option to write a personal message on the frame. dynalab has additionally commissioned five artists or writers to create special limited edition nobikes for a one-off colection.

series one of nobike is currently in production, with each custom piece of the bicycle coming with its own serial number. in the future, dynalab will work on transfering the adjustable design into an e-bike format.

  • While the concept has some shortcomings I would applaud their effort to create something different and break away from the welded tube form factor. However the concept of an adjustable geometry sounds good on paper, in reality people are going to set it one way and forget about it. This is a solution looking for a problem.

  • “… This is a solution looking for a problem…”, I agree!

  • This can greatly reduce the inventory carry cost for bike shops. They won’t need to carry as many sizes and reduces the risk of having shortages or surpluses of particular sizes. It also simplifies the after sale bike comfort adjustments. Both can result in cost benefits for vendors as well as consumers.
