Designer John Villarreal, from Wisconsin, has come up with this futuristic concept bicycle.Ã‚Â Intended to offer a peak into the future, as advances in material technology and manufacturing techniques allow the creation of structures that would currently be impossible, this bike was created by paring away everything non-essential to its function. The hubless wheels appear to turn on bearings running around a modified rim, with unspecified futuristic materials allowing the designer to impart enough stiffness without excessive weight. I don’t think that the big wheel makers will be looking to this as the next big thing but, of course, anything is possible in the future! The integrated handlebar, brakes and lights add to the sleek, futuristic appearance which won’t be to everybody’s tastes. Maybe if Michael Knight is looking for an environmentally friendly alternative to KITT he could speak to John Villarreal.
