GOOD Design Daily: What if Your Bike Was a Station Wagon?

by Alissa Walker

I'm not sure how stable the bike would be while porting 330 pounds in it, but it seems like the small wheels and low center of gravity could work to its advantage. Besides, just imagine all the cargo you could stuff into one of these things. In one photo, they manage to fit a person! And thanks to a local woodsman, they've even managed to put an entire tree onto this bike. (Never mind the rider's lumberjack scowl, he's actually very happy. Although I would suggest some kind of case for his chainsaw while in transit.)

The Camioncyclette isn't commercially available—the project was the designer's graduate thesis—but it does provide some really interesting insight into where bike design is going. The more we bike, the more we'll need to transport from point A to B. This could be the two-wheeled equivalent of the grocery-getter.
