Street-Level Innovation | Have wheel, will travel. Urban folding bike

Related to my previous post, here’s another solution for eco-friendly urban transportation. A folding bike that really folds into minimal space – the circumference of its wheel.

“I couldn’t find a folding bicycle I liked…I wanted something that could take a bit of punishment and that you could have fun with. So I made one myself.”

24-year old inventor Dominic Hargreaves has designed and built a bike that foldsup to the size of the bike’s wheels. Not as impressive as a bike that folds up into its own squeaky horn.

Mr. Hargreaves has been in contact with various manufacturers and hopes to get the bike into production soon.
