Evolution Bike by Roel Verhagen Kaptein

This Evolution Bike concept tries to incorporate the best of existing bike designs, without their drawbacks. Recumbent bikes have a benefit of low wind resistance and a comfortable seating position, but the looks of these bikes are often questionable. The low models are barely visible in traffic, they need a lot of maintenance and are often pretty expensive.

City bikes and mountain bikes have good looks and a higher point of view witch is important in city traffic. However, when you have a head on wind on a long stretch of road, this model bike is not the most comfortable and fastest.

The Evolution Bike has all the benefits: low wind resistance, good looks, high point of view and very easy in maintenance. It’s been designed for anybody who rides a distance of 5 to 25 km on a regular basis.

Other innovative features from this Evolution bike design would its layout. The front hub with inline crank shaft and continuously variable transmission makes this layout possible.

  1. The only issue I have is that when one pushes on the pedals, it would force the steering in the opposite direction. you would have to counter that force with your arms. I'm sure climbing steep hills would be quite a work out.

  2. maybe you could make it in a laying position, it then would counter this problem with steering, would would just have to redesign the pedals, or make them clasp to your shoes.
