Sure, there may be a few integral components missing from this concept (gears, chains, pedals...) but designer Juri Zaech is trying to figure out a way to actually make a prototype of one of the bikes. Any ideas? [Behance via TrendsNow]

As cool as that is, he will have to compromise some style to make it work. The Andrea bike, for instance, will not be structurally sound without a lot more connections between the letters.

Not sure how many, exactly, but at the very least the n is going to have to reach down and connect to the A or you are going to have a lot of bounce and eventually a fatigue failure. You would also need a connection at the bottom of the d for a bottom bracket shell.

As those are very complex shapes, it will be difficult to tell for sure if they are strong enough. I suppose it would be an easy enough to model in a computer, if you were devoted to actually selling these and wanted to make sure they don't kill anyone.

Bikes are made in triangles because they are strong. With heavy enough tubing, many shapes could be strong enough for a bike. The question is really how heavy a bike are you willing to make.
