    nice concepts but it looks like only two of them have the "steering" option.

    kinda funny that they are designed as roadie bikes, yet those bikes would all be illegal under racing rules.

    because frame must have a basic triangulated layout or along those lines. Makers started to produce super aerodynamic monocoque designs but they were outlawed, at least in some circuits. Dont know the details.

    I also like that in the future, you will need no standover. I guess we will have evolved past the 'nads stage.

    Some of those seats look hella comfortable. Also, as Zedro said, yeah they'd all be illegal for road racing. You can't even use a Softride bike in UCI comps (at least that used to be the case).

    Hey that new Bullit design looks identical to a Weyless 67. Must be made in the same factory huh?

    Basicly there is an electrically powered sensor in the frame by the head tube (or whatever you want to call it) which will send a current to a master cylinder after receiving input from the handle bars and hydraulicly point the front wheel in the direction you are turning the handle bars.

    the S-works version of the steering system is derived from adhesive electronic pulse sensing pads that you put on your head under your helmet when riding then all you have to do is "think" of which direction you want to go and you will turn in that direction.

    Already seen but some of them look interesting others just look pointless. I like the one without spokes. There was a chopper like that it looked awesome.

    I think they need to build a killer huge freeride course on the moon. Then IMBA should make space travel like $250 return with your gear and rig. Oh, and then all the starbucks, mountain dew, and shots of tequila necessary for a good ole huckfest. Think of how much air you could get with low gravity.

    I hate to be the one who sh!ts on peoples parades, but I believe that link you provided is a hoax. I remember seeing one of those bike before....except...it was a Photoshop Tutorial...

    Lookie....


    and this is where it came from
    OMG THE WEBSITE

    It just looks like someone got a little happy with the tutorial....and decided to toss in some bullsh!t to make a salad.
