rural mobility

design should address the needs first followed by wants. being in india, i see problems everyday, one of that came to my notice when i saw rural women traveling long distances on their foot to work on fields and other places for their daily needs. some even carried heavy loads like pots and farm produce. i thought of designing a simple bicycle for them. key points that i kept in mind were..weight, takes care of their dress(sarees), easy detachable parts, rains, maintenance, and most importantly the cost.
the design hopes to take such things in account and uses exiting manufacturing techniques.
