Queen's Nephew Using Strida
article by The Mirror reports that Viscount Linley is using a Strida bicycle to take his daughter to school, but he has been critised because the Strida is not designed to carry two people. A spokesperson for Strida is reported as saying, The shelf is to carry a light raincoat, not a child. Viscount Linley is taking an incredible risk. We strongly advise against anyone trying this with an A-Bike!

Locust Concept Bicycle Folds into a Wheel
This was recently spotted by a few readers.
Yanko Design are showcasing a concept design by Josef Cadek for a bicycle with a circular frame, where both wheels, and the handle bars fold inside it, resulting in a folded bike the size of one wheel! In order to achieve this, the designer states that, Common chain system is replaced by belt system with outer toothing. Belt is mounted on two rollers. Both chainwheel and pinion have outer toothing as well.
The world's smallest folding bike.
