  • My main goal for this project was to design and prototype a folding bicycle that is not only intuitive and easy to use, but one that is aesthetically pleasing without compromising the strength of the frame as it steps away from traditional bike design. The entire frame was prototyped out of plywood, while the seat was sculpted out of insulation foam.
  • Step 1: Magnetic handlebars fold up and then down onto the frame
  • Step 3: The bicycle frame folds in half
