T Bike : A Minimalist Bike for Third World Cities

Antonio Serrano, an industrial designer, has come up with T Bike, a minimalist and simple bike for third world cities such as Mexico City. It’s a sturdy bike that can handle rough terrains or poor infrastructures which are usually found in third world countries. The rear suspension design was inspired by cross motorcycles, it provides a great response and comfort ride in any terrain. The frame is constructed of high-strength aluminum, making this bike lightweight, and durable. The main focus here is to ensure this concept bike is easy and cheap to mass produce, making it affordable for many people.

In all seriousness – incredibly bad design. If your chain doesn't snap right away, it'll simply fall off. Look at what will happen to the chain as the rear suspension goes up and down. Not only that, your front forks are as wide as the top tube. Can't turn it more than a couple of degrees. No concept of engineering or ergonomic design.

    I'll agree with you plus the design of it seems like a bike been made of wood and ben painted.

I agree with with michael – terrible design elements. There are no stansard 'off the shelf' parts which would keep the price down. Very high standover height restricts ability to manouvre the bike. rear suspension is locked out by pedalling forces. This is a joke isnt it

Third-world cities such as Mexico City with rough or crumbling infrastructure? Try Portland, Oregon. From the description, one of these would be an absolute MUST for getting around here.

Too bad the bike is a design nightmare (obvious from the pix) and a decent full-suspension MTB gives all the benefits this one allegedly gives. Plus, in most places a working FSMTB can be had or built up from spare parts for a song.
