Rotation Folding Bike

Yirong Yang designed this bicycle. Even though it has one of the strangest designs in the world, it’s one of the most interesting to ride. It’s a “rotation” city bike that’s adjustable. This means if you’re on the bike, you can change it so it feels as comfortable as possible while you take it for a spin. There’s nothing worse than sitting on a bicycle that feels uncomfortable. Additionally, you can adjust the bicycle to use it either as a bicycle or a unicycle. You’re getting two for one  (Bicycle Design).

Penny-Farthing 

This is a penny-farthing bicycle designed by Guillaume Bout, and has one of the strangest designs we’ve ever seen. He had the past in mind and took the Victorian-era bicycle and created a spin-off from it. That’s one way to recreate the past, use outdated designs and creativity and make something new.  This bicycle uses a carbon fibre frame, a trailing wheel and technical details that were planned and well-thought-out. This bike is no joke and is ready for off-roading at any time (Road.cc).

GT Mileno

As one of the strangest designs out there, the GT Mileno can switch from an urban bicycle, cruising the city streets, to a bicycle that’s used for carrying cargo. Whichever its purpose, it seems complex and unlike any other bike on this list. It has a module that fastens in the front. Its two powered wheels ease the strain of the bike when it’s fully loaded with gear. If you’re someone who’s constantly carrying around a lot of gear with them, then this bike might be suitable for you (Road.cc).

The 911

The 911

We’ve seen a bicycle inspired by a VW Beetle, and now we’re seeing a bike inspired by the 911. It looks like many bikes out there take inspiration from surprising places. This one in particular was designed by David Schultz, who also helped design Microsoft.  He calls it “fast, lightweight, simple, tough, and timeless,” which are all positive ways to describe a bike with one of the strangest designs in the world. He’s not wrong in calling it all those positive aspects, because it certainly embodies it. This is a bicycle we’d love to take around for a spin (Road.cc).

BMC Impec

The designers of the BMC Impec weren’t afraid to think outside the box, and we can see that in the bicycle they created. Coming all the way from Switzerland is a bike with one of the strangest designs in the world. This bike used advanced research in its design, as the creators took everything into consideration.  They built it using disc brakes, a concealed drivetrain, a low-slung aero frame, and a computer head unit. These are only a few of the features of the overall bike with a beautiful design that certainly makes us want to try it around the city. It’s another one of those concept bikes that really prove anything Is possible when It comes to design (Road.cc).
