|The Halfbike II in action|
Here's an unusual bicycle out of Bulgaria called the Halfbike II. The company is run by two guys who got funding through Kickstarter. They are both cyclists and architects. The design they came up with is pretty impressive. You stand up instead of sitting down. The pedals drive the 20 inch diameter front wheel, with a Sturmey Archer three-speed internal hub. There are two 8 inch diameter wheels in the rear. To turn the bike you just lean to one side instead of turning the front wheel. The handlebars fold down to make the bike more portable. They come in three different sizes and you can order one from Halfbike for $614. Below is a video that shows riders on Halfbikes.
