any pictures of the folded bike?
I’m interested if there is any rationale behind the spoke design. They narrow near the hub, reducing capacity for torque transfer via shear, and the offset bias suggests they would take braking in extra tension (good) but pedal forces in extra compression (not so good)
A folded image would be great too, as I can’t determine the pivot plane from the images.
If I had to guess, I’d say the inward tapering spokes are referencing an airplane propeller.
Excelentes renders. Especialmente el primero.
Great renderings. Especilly the first one.
The pivot plane would appear to be in the seat post,or halfway between crank and seat.It is a very crisp design.
Looks to me (clearest in the 2nd picture) like the pivot plane is half way down the seat post almost horizontal but tilted to just above the front wheel hub.
Those wheels are giving me flashbacks of detonated Rev-Xs. The frame/pivot design is very nice.
