Here come twisting bikes
    2017-05-03  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

The Trocadero-fixie, also known as the bendy bike, has been designed with one thing in mind — fun.

The bike is becoming increasingly popular in France where it was invented by three researchers.

It looks like a regular pushbike until you pull a pin that unlocks the main frame.

This allows the bike to twist in the middle so the rider can push the rear wheel out of line with the front to create a gliding sensation.

The Trocado website explains: “With this bike you are closer to the ground, the turns are more vivid than on a standard bike. This gives you the feeling of gliding. The principle is always to have the front wheel well vertical* and, thanks to the bearing in the frame, pivot on the rear wheel, which gives direction to the bike. It’s great fun on both the descent and the flat. And if you no longer want the disarticulated function, it is possible to snap the pin and the Trocadero-Fixie becomes normal again.”(SD-Agencies)
