I wasn’t (and still aren’t) entirely sure what inspired this rather unusual piece of engineering when I saw it posted on Twitter yesterday morning:
Upon further investigation (thank you YouTube) it seems the front wheel broke on a kerb impact, so The Q decided to totally re-engineer the rear of the bike.
Regardless of the inspiration behind the thought process, I can’t deny that it’s a creative, unusual and pretty interesting. I suspect it’s probably also quite weird to ride – especially when trying to corner – and I wonder just how much of a concern uneven ground might be.
Anyhow, check out the video below to see how The Q managed to put this together.
