The Lunartic Cycle designed by Luke Douglas is constructed with a combination of different wheel sizes, a toothed belt drive and hub less rear wheel.
Luke a final year student at Loughborough University Design and Technology has already created a fully working prototype that can be viewed in the video after the jump.
Lunartic is supposed to be as compact as possible without folding or being awkward to ride, however there is the potential for the front wheel to fold up into the rear or for that space to be used for a laptop back, motor or dynamo. The small front wheel has been used to save space but to also enhances manoeuvrability.
The Lunartic Cycle is another entry in the James Dyson Awards. An international design award that celebrates, encourages and inspires the next generation of design engineers. If you like the concept you can vote for this and see the other entrants on the James Dyson Awards website.
