Full Circle has been designed by Sanghyun Jeong and Jun-Tae Park from Korea and has been shortlisted from more than 3,000 entries into the recent Design Boom Competition.
Designers thoughts and explaination:
Full circle’ is a compact-sized city bike that has a large wheel size (508mm, 20”) like a sprinter minivelo.
this specification makes this bike easy to navigate through a big city like seoul, while most compact bikes that have small wheels have difficulty. in short, this is a small bike with big wheels. ‘full circle’ does not have chains, but free wheel gear directly connected to its pedals.
It just looks like a fixed gear, but it isn’t. ‘full circle’ has a very simple folding structure, so the ride can easily and quickly fold and unfold the body in a busy downtown, even on the subway. most of its parts can be folded, including the saddle and handle bars.
