FlooW and more

I’m still slammed with work after a couple weeks out of the office, but I want to quickly pass along a few links of interest.

I don’t have a lot of information about it, but FlooW is a pretty interesting mobility concept. You can read more about this high tech recumbent quadricycle design (in Dutch) on the website, or better yet, check out the animated videos. I like the headlight integrated into the carbon fiber body. The optional roof is another nice detail.

This climbing bike storage/lock has been making the blog rounds. The DIY collar, made from Conrad parts, features motorized skateboard wheels that allow it to climb to the top of a lamp pole. Stay tuned until the end of the video to see it in action.

I posted David Parrott’s Trimtab 3×3 lean steer recumbent trike in June. Since then he turned in the project (his Master’s thesis) and has been test riding and refining a few details. He hasn’t clocked it at full speed, but claims that it does “19-20mph without pedaling and at less than full throttle.” See a video of it in action here.

We have all seen bamboo bikes (increasingly the last couple years), but this one from Mexican company Bamboo Cycles is a bit different. I like the aesthetic of the curved seat tube with the bamboo top tube, down tube, seat stays and chain stays. I am not sure how it rides, but it is an interesting approach.

    The quad looks good but the model is obviously not a cyclist by looking her left foot. That is not a good way to pedal.
