Ridiculous XC Bike - Interpolate
The Interpolate XC concept bicycle was ideated in 2016 as a possible solution to a fundamental question; what if bicycle wheels increase in size, bigger than the current 29 inches in diameter for cross country racing but yet, maintain contemporary riding position/geometry?
 
The idea went viral across the international mountain biking community and was featured in prominent mountain biking websites such as Bikerumour, Bikeradar, Vitalmtb and MBR. This concept went on to win the excellence award in the 21st International Bicycle Design Competition 2017 in Taipei, Taiwan.
