Bicymple is a radically redesigned bicycle that has no chain, a dramatically shortened wheelbase, and both front and rear wheel steering (video). The bicycle is a one-off design concept by Josh Bechtel of Bellingham, Washington. However, due to interest in Bicymple, he is now developing it for production.
More than just a stylish concept bike, the bicymple is comfortable, easy to ride, and brilliantly simple to maintain. The lightweight design and short wheelbase make for a nimble ride. The optional rear-steer mode is reminiscent of custom “swing bikes” and allows tighter turns and “crab-riding”.
The ultra-compact design makes it effortless to get in and out of tight spaces and easily squeezes into stairwells, hallways, fire escapes, nooks, and crannies.
