The humble bike is one of the most practical transportation devices known to man, and it is certainly the most eco friendly commuting mechanism within a urban environment. The use of bikes helps cut down pollution, ensures good health and lets you meander through traffic with ease.
The Carrier Bike from Korean designer Shin Hyung Sub Shin seeks to give the bike a 21st Century makeover. The Carrier Bike is capable of transforming between two modes; Bicycle mode (not folded) and Carrier mode (folded). The middle part of the design acts like a storage area that opens with a sliding door. In addition, it is also the part that contains the electric motor and the pedals.
The bike design stresses the importance of comfort, in that is allows the biker to carry belongings easily. The most unique feature is that this same storage part allows users to carry their belongings not only when the bike is in carrier mode, but also when the bike is in riding mode.The bicycle is powered by an electric motor and a battery. It features spoke-less wheels and a handle bar that can also be used as a carrier handle.
