Slider Folding Bike Bicycle by Paul Hao Ting Hsu

DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Slider Folding Bike

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Bicycle

INSPIRATION:
Thinking about how hard a folding bike is unfriendly to woman, I want to design a better bike for them. Use gravity to help the folding process, and better diamond shape for fashion. That's the bike I want to give them.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
The concept is the use of better structure and change handle place to reduce the hardness of riding on and the high weight of the folding. This is a solution that Citybike user request can be solved. The main frame with the diamond shape and the principle of the gravitational field equilibrium no need to wear all the bike weight on and folded in 2 seconds. Upon opening, just tilt, gravity would give strength to help expand. Slider after folding size is a suitcase size and handlebars can be used as drag handle. Diamond structure help the front wheel steady on it fixed.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:

Diamond structure help the front wheel steady on it fixed.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The project started in September 2011 in Taiwan and finished in May 2012 in Taiwan, and was exhibited in Taipei world trad center in May 2012.

FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:
Vehicle, Mobility and Transportation Design

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
Use 6061 Aluminum tube Welding all the parts up, I design a better way to shape the diamond structure. All of the tube size is in 4 diffident sizes, which make the production cost down. 20"inches Tires make this bike size small, but the geometric dimensions is so good that ride us a 26"inches bike.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
Un-folding size: width 1400mm x Depth 400mm x height 1000mm Folded size:width 800mm x Depth 600mm x height 700mm

TAGS:

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
Geometric dimensions totally think about woman users. How to make a better bike but to make it affordable. I think about the gravity and the folding process, how to make it easy and better. I use the TRIZ tools to help me figure all the problem. And using 3D software to calculate the structure strength. All this come up and Slider came.

CHALLENGE:
geometric dimensions, folding process, structure strength, cost down, usage, all this makes harder to production.
