No Spoke Wheels Bike Concept – Nulla Bicycle

Admin September 20, 2010 9

No longer can one clothes-pin and an ace of spades be pinned to the sturdy metal frame of your bike to make a motor sound. Bradford Waugh Design concept of a spoke-free bicycle, the Nulla Bike, has spawned from the depths of design. Would you purchase this beautifully designed hubless bicycle?

    No I would not purchase it, as the wheel attachments are very wrong. And so are a few other things in this design.

    It seems a very nice concept. But, what do you do when you are biking in the forest and there is a lot of mudd?

    Is the height of the seat adjustable at all?

    If someone overweight sits on that seat, it will break. Is it adjustable?

    This idea seems poorly thought out. It is almost like the makers of this bicycle hope to sell their product just because it is different. There is no advantage or purpose behind the design. I would much rather use commonly found bicycle designs. It must be obvious that if you want the wheels to be able to withstand the same amount of weight a spoke design uses, the wheel frames must be thicker. In other words, if this is some attempt at making a lighter bicycle, I -highly- doubt that it would succeed..

    “It is almost like the makers of this bicycle hope to sell their product just because it is different.” So do you own a car simply because it drives with nothing special about it, or do you pick out something nice?

    The metal or material used to make the rim must be very strong to withstand and impact and weight. If not, it will end up being an oval instead of a circle. It is again difficult for me to understand how the front tires are held. If it is held in a groove, what about the high friction? Will it come off?
    The rear wheel will experience an uneven downward pressure where it comes in contact with the rest of the body.
    In my view this is not a practical design. It is more of an eye pleasing design that can be used in virtual world (may be in games or virtual reality where things don’t have to comply with basic rules of physics)
