Number Eighteen 18
The Varibike is an attractive design. Made in Germany, it almost looks like a standard bike.

Not only does this offer an upper body workout, but it also powers your bike alongside your feet allowing you to gain tremendous amounts of speed. Pricing starts out at five thousand, eight hundred dollars.
Number Seventeen 17
The K Trac is a traction system that adapts to most mountain bikes on the market. This traction system replaces the front tire with a ski and the bike tire with a six-speed track system reminiscent of an army tank. This new system allows the bike to get traction in the snow when it usually wouldn’t be able to. Pricing starts around eight hundred dollars.
Number Sixteen 16
This next bike has everyone focused on the lack of a place to rest your rump. When instead, everyone should be focusing on the Dreamslide’s fancy crank. It has two independent crank arms that move three times faster going upward that allow you to put all your weight on the descending leg while standing up, making the bike a comfortable ride. Pricing on this one starts out at one thousand, seven hundred dollars.
Number Fifteen 15
Coming from the mind of Dave Schwartz, the Flying Rider is made to give riders more leverage on the pedals while riding. Instead of a seat, the rider is suspended by a harness from above with a bar behind them to push up against while pedaling. While coasting down hill, the rider can relax and stretch out their legs Super Man style while the harness supports them. While currently in the prototype stage, Schwartz is working on the final carbon fiber design.
Number Fourteen 14
The Quiggle is a super compact, folding bicycle made in Germany. When folded up, the bike is small enough to be a carryon during a flight.

Pricing starts at thirteen hundred dollars.
Number Thirteen 13
The Twicycle, similar to the Veribike, has that double chain system. The main difference between them is that the handlebars act as the crank arms rather than a completely separate crank arm system.

Pricing starts at fourteen hundred dollars.
Number Twelve 12
Make It Extreme has quite the knack for making things, well, extreme. Their Fat bike is no exception. Using two donated wheels from an immobile car, and a few other car parts they hand made this bike and machined special bearings for the wheels. It sure looks like a chore to get this bike moving, but it has style all its own. Just because this is a one of a kind bike doesn’t mean you shouldn’t grab some car tires and make one of your own.
Number Eleven 11
If you need the kind of bike that makes people do a double take, then the dragster styled Nitro Rail is the bike for you. Even though it looks completely different than any other bike, it behaves just the same way with no sacrifice to the power of the bike. The bike has a sixty-eight inch wheel base. There’s a full sized adult model and a kid’s sized Micro Rail model as well. The full size Nitro Rail costs a thousand dollars. The kid’s size is four hundred dollars.

If invented today, what would the first ever bicycle look like today? I didn’t even know I needed this question answered until right now.

A modern bicycle with a design following the Penny Farthing bicycle, it also includes an electric drive and has puncture proof tires. Since this is just a concept, don’t expect to see them for sale any time soon.
Number Seven 7
The Explorer Three is the ultimate in off road hand cycling. This backward trike is a bicycle that doesn’t allow you to use your feet at all. Instead, you use your hands for powering the bike. The cushion chest pad isn’t there for comfort either. It allows you to steer and cycle while your hands are busy pedaling. There are options for drive trains ranging from sixteen to twenty-two gears. As well as an electric assist. Pricing starts at two thousand, three hundred dollars.
Number Six 6
The BiGen Hank is a classy little folding bicycle.

Pricing on this one starts at fourteen hundred dollars.
Number Three 3
This crazy bike concept, even though it might not look like it, is entirely ergonomically designed. The Fliz creates an upgrade to walking and shares some things in common with the Flying Rider. It’s five point harness holds the driver’s body up and since there are no pedals, the driver propels the bike by walking. The suspended seat on the Fliz eliminates stress impact on the legs while also protecting the rider from running related injuries. Because the Fliz bike is still in the concept stage, it won’t be for sale any time soon.
Number Two 2
Not only is this Sata bike stikingly beautiful, but it also folds down to the size of an umbrella. It’s hubblest design allows for a lower center of gravity giving the bike a better road grip, steering, and breaking capabilities.
