The BMW i Pedelec Concept is designed specifically to match the i3 Concept car launched in September last year, and two of them will fit side by side in its boot. It collapses enough to be wheeled onto public transport and is still slow enough (25 kilometres per hour) not to require a license or insurance.
A major goal of the new design is to offer a fully valuable bike with a great ability to be folded and stored in small spaces (cases, car trunks etc.). A main feature of the design is the circular frame. It allows unusual folding. Both wheels have an overhung mounting. After releasing safety lock nuts the wheels can be turned around a relevant axis into the frame. It is the Locust Folding Bike designed by Josef Cadek.
