    It looks like an anorexic Vespa scooter! But… what about seat adjustability? And let’s be fair: unless it’s mado out of carbon fibers, it probably weighs more than a steel-tube bicycle.

    The build of the frame is the obvious way to make a frame out of a few pressed metal or composites parts. It’s good design for assembly. Using composites could result in a quite light frame.

    But a real bike needs a proper and adjustable seat (which is not that difficult to incorporate into the design). Ouch indeed!

    I think it’s a GREAT IDEA! A bike seat would be nice, or use that one but make it adjustable with skirts/underseat bags. It looks perfect for an eBke, too. Plenty of room for batteries/compartments & clever things like that. Whoever thought of this is a genius, pure and simple.
