Bicycle Friendly Communities are growing. There are great reasons for this trend, bicycle is the most energy efficient form of transportation known to man, it’s eco friendly, and it provides a great form of exercise. Ville is an urban folding bicycle that answers the urban commuter needs. It incorporates a folding design that allows for easy storage while not in use. But, there’s one cool thing about this bike compared to other folding bikes. When folded, Ville also doubles as a cart. Very cool, huh? You can go grocery shopping and let this bike be your cart. This allows the bicycle to stay with you and avoiding the need to leave the bike unattended, reducing the risk for theft.

It’s a beautiful creation, the carved inner wall offers you a special reward upon opening, the hull shape evokes that of travel and adventure. The unique pod shape attracts everyone to touch and curiously open it. Any heirloom objects should only be kept in such a curious cabinet. designed by Jeremy Zietz, a product designer and woodworker, the coopered staves of quarter-sawn ash subtly facet to wrap around this floating shelves that mount on a slatted backing.

The name MOOBY Bike was born out of the idea of shortening the word mobility. With the increasing in traffic, it would be more comfortable and healthier to ride a bike to reach your destination. MOOBY bike won’t formally revolutionize the category of bikes, but conceptually, considering the vehicle as fashionable object or gadget that reflects the owner’s style or mood, just like clothes. Thank you to the side plates, you can change the look, color, graphics and material quickly to customize the style of your bike!
The frame structure is made of aluminum alloy or composite materials, while the plates are made of fiberglass covered with fabrics or wood, etc. Mechanically the motion is transmitted by a series of gears, connected with a small chain which actuates the orbital wheel. MOOBY Bike was inspired by the single speed and fixed-gear bike, so it doesn’t have brakes for both wheels.
