Future Proof / Kid bike

Future Proof
Future Proof

The kid’s bike nowadays have a very short lifespan, the bikes are designed for a certain age. Kids will outgrow them fast and need new bigger bike. A kid at the age of twelve has already used three or four bikes. It will be a great leap forward if the child would have only one bike during his childhood. The solution is simple the bike has to grow in size. This is done by simplifying the frame and liking the front section to the back section with two tubes. These tubes can slide out of the back section in three different positions. This increases the lifespan of the bike from 2 years to 6 years.
