LAX: a bicycle to a chair / bicycle

LAX: a bicycle to a chair
LAX: a bicycle to a chair

LAX is a bicycle design which can be folded into a chair. The user can take a seat to rest anywhere at anytime during their ride, simply by folding the bicycle into a chair.
LAX uses a hubless gear system and a ball-socket lock joint with grooves, which makes the folding possible. The hubless gear system keeps the spokes out of the wheels which makes space for the seating area and the legs of the chair.
The seating area, the rear wheel, is covered is mesh fabric which will allow air to go through. This provides safety for the user to steer without any wind disturbance.
LAX is two opposite things in one. A bicycle to ride, and a chair to rest.
