Check out this rather unique bicycle concept by English designer Thomas Jowen. He has named this conceptual design as ‘One’, which is an urban bike that can be folded when not in use. Once the bike is folded, it will make a compact round shaped design which hardly occupies any space. Hopefully the bike will hit the market soon! [Thomas Jowen]
