When not taking part in imaginary two-wheeled space adventures atop my metallic pink streamer-handled-huffy, this Lady loved to build random creations with her older brothers’ left-over Legos.
So imagine my resplendent glee upon seeing not only an adult lego-like toy, but one that happens to also be a bicycle.
This is so incredibly awesome ! Check out the link, Ladies (and Lady-lovers) to read about the N55 designed XYZ Cargo bike!
Want a simple cargo bike? It can do that.
Want a fruit stand, ice-cream-pedalmobile, roving-library, portable-banana-stand? It can do that, too.
How about an INSTANT PARK?! It does that, too!
Absolutely fabulous (and fun) concept & design. Lovely!
From the article:
Like all modular systems, XYZ nodes enable people to build things based on the principle of a few different parts repeatedly used to create an overall structure, similar to construction sets like Lego, Meccano and Erector. Because of the open and modular design, the XYZ Cargo Cycles are easy to customize and to rebuild. For example, a cover or a body to improve wind resistance and protect from the weather can be applied — turning the cargo cycle into a velomobile…
Several modules have been developed that can be put on top of the XYZ Cargo Trike to transform its functionality: a roof and table module, a passenger seat module, a kitchen module with table, roof and sink, and a platform module. The latter transforms the cargo cycle into a 1.5 x 3 m large movable space, while from a legal point of view remaining a bicycle. The platform module was used to create a ParkCycle Swarm, which empowers people to build an instant public park whenever and wherever they want to.
The possibilities are endless, and the cost/design is accessible. So what would you make with your build-a-bike XYZ?
Keep innovating, playing, and pedaling, Ladies!
