Tricycles Are Just Bicycles from the Future

Illustration for article titled Tricycles Are Just Bicycles from the Future

While the tricycle/Big Wheel are both throwbacks to our past, one designer believes that three wheels are the future. Felipe Tolomei designed this three-wheeled Rabbit bike with a clever idea-put two small electric motors on each back tire. Now if we would only widen each of those motorized wheels to dragster dimensions and stick in a carbon-spewing dual exhaust, I think we'd have ourselves a serious concept. [coroflot via gearfuse]

DISCUSSION

Two wheels in the front, one in back is a much more stable design for cornering.

It's odd that people don't really like those "reverse trike" designs even though they are more practical.

This design is certainly aesthetically pleasing though.
