M-bike

iF DESIGN TALENT AWARD_01 2017

Riding a bike to go shopping is quite fun and convenient. However, you have to leave your bike outside the stores and carry all your purchases in your hand from time to time. Not so pleasing to a shopper, isn’t it? This is why we innovated a new vehicle: our M-bike solves this problem! The M-bike can be folded and turned into a shopping cart in a second. Now you can load the heavy groceries directly on to the M-bike and enjoy the shopping. There is no need to lock and watch your bike anymore as M-bike is just one step beside you all the time. What’s more, M-bike is still the fun riding equipment when you need it.

Conceptually, this is an interesting idea: you use a folding bike with basket as a shopping cart. However, I have some reservations regarding its structural feasability and how the bike folds up, but overall I find it a good solution for people who want to go grocery shopping on a bike.
