This bicycle tire design features a wheel that’s split into multiple identical pieces with the spokes being designed specifically for shock absorption. Upon encountering an obstacle, the spokes just simply bend inward, allowing the tire to deform in the shape of the obstacle, and the bike to ride right across like cutting through air. The same would work for potholes. If and when a wheel gets damaged, just simply replace the damaged components rather than the entire wheel itself!
Artist Jay Nelson created the Golden Gate 2 in 2015. It features a bed and storage cubbies, it's powered by an electric motor and bicycle components, and has a top speed of 15 miles per hour. You drive it sitting cross-legged. “I designed it more as a living space than a car,” he says.
