Arch Folding Bicycle / Bicycle (Products)

Arch Folding Bicycle

In recent years, many Chinese cities have begun to provide public bicycle services. However, there have been some problems to be faced: the public bicycle service station will occupy a considerable part of the sidewalk area, in some areas even appear to occupy the Tactile strips.
In order to solve this problem, I put forward the concept of Arch Folding Bicycle. I redesigned the bike's body and added a simple swivel mechanism to reduce 30% of covers an area compared to the previous. This can reduce the occupation of public space by traditional public bicycles, and can give some of the land resources limited areas more possibilities.
