The amazing Halfbike

No, it's not the ill-conceived love child of a Segway and folding bike. This is the Halfbike, the ultra-portable urban transport solution looking to win the hearts and feet of city commuters.

Having done away with handlebars, A-frame and seat of a standard bike, the Halfbike design utilises the actions running and cycling. Pedalling from a standing position, clutching the single upright break handle, Halfbikers steer by leaning into corners.

Weighing just 7.8kg, the Halfbike is looking to court those who might require a quick set of wheels for the final stages of a commute. Will you look silly? Yes. Will you attract the wrath of pavements and cycle paths alike? Yes. Will you be around long enough to care? No.

You can place an order in on Kickstarter for £540 ($899).
