Students at Yale university have developed a spokeless bicycle wheel , as you can see from the photo only the rear wheel is spokeless, this was done for cost reasons as the prototype was expensive to produce.
The nine students developed the wheel as part of their mechanical engineering project, and the design would allow for both wheels to be made spokeless.
It certainly seems like a very clever design, and apparently the spokeless wheel would allow for easy integration with an electric motor.
Very cool, who knows in the future all bicycles could end up being spokeless, I wonder how strong it is, obviously the students took that into consideration when building the wheel.
