The MORI Folding Bike is a concept bike designed by designer Janus Yuan who wants to create a super cool bike of the future.

Based on statistic in America, only 25% of bicycle riders in the city are women. This is due to most of the bike that are designed specially for existing cyclists and few of them are for non-riders and women in the city. According to the designer, the characteristics of a bike for female users should be light weight, easy to use, beautiful, versatile and small enough for user to carry and storage.

Therefore Yuan created MORI Folding Bike. This concept bike, which is still on paper and has not yet been put into production, aims to expand the market of potential bike riders, especially in an urban environment where people find a compact bike extremely useful. The functionality of the 3D printable folding bicycle will also appeal to most of female users.

Using 3D printing technology, users can design the look of their 3D printed bike, and choose their favorite personal pattern, color and texture.

You can easily transform this bike from bicycle, scooter, trolley, folding to fashion. MORI folding bike is your perfect daily companion, from going to work, shop, to ride home, notes the designer.

I agree, I'm all for conceptual design but not for a product that has key fundamentals that are obviously missing from the design thought process here. I would also add that having skills to create a cad model does not make a designer. There are some fabulous bike design ideas out there but the goods ones are based on sound engineering principles and don't try to reinvent the laws of physics. Design should push the boundaries, but breaking them results in a product that is essentially useless.

What is it about bicycles that makes anybody with a 3d modeler and Photoshop think they can design them? This designer seems to not have the most basic understanding of how a bicycle works, from the non existent steering mechanism to pedals that are half the height they need to be in order to be usable. Even the seat seems to misunderstand its basic function. In the towing configuration the wheels are so close together and the center of gravity so high that it could never be stable enough to pull without toppling continuously. Look at how it magically balances on its curved bottom under the desk without anything to stabilize it! I was going to say, well at least it is decorative, but even that is stretching the truth.
