4.) a bicycle - for two-forces
This tandem single version has a slightly stretched frame construction, to which a second leaning saddle can be put on.
The extended beyond the pedal point here lever arms are operated by the second driver via attachable pedals. These double-sided lever arms are therefore a fixed wheel inventory.
For single tours, the second pedals and the second saddle can simply stay at home.
In pair operation, a harmonious and perfect division of labor is possible with independent gear selection.
This opens up the development and market consolidation to a creative lightweight tandem single-bike!
The outfit would remain the concrete design result of the respective bicycle manufacturer.
5.) In heat and rain
Who likes to ride a bike in the rain or in high heat? Hardly anyone !
The fact is, our city, cargo and touring bicycles only offer high driving comfort every day if they protect us from wet or direct sunlight. An attachable protective roof would encourage
you to leave the car more often in the garage. Maybe some people change to a bike.
A horizontal weather protection roof protects against the sun and rain. On the other hand, as a photovoltaic foil stretched on the aluminum roof frame or as a roller blind, it also
supplies a considerable part of the drive energy.
The electricity generated on the roof is fed into the solar battery integrated in the bike frame (InTube). The approx. 150 / W PV foil ** harvests daylight electricity all day long,
even in diffuse weather conditions.
The approximately 1.1 m² roof generates about the energy of a medium-long driving distance.
The lightweight, removable roof is wind-slippery; because even changing winds are actually flat. In a longer test phase, I drove such a problem - even with strong gusts of wind.
For retrofitting such a roof - behind the saddle-backrest or on the handlebars clickable - always a profit.
The four roof corners optionally contain the flashing lights of a turn signal. The lights supplied by the battery should - due to the dangers in today's traffic density - be supplemented
by a brake light. The reliable on / off switching of the night lighting should be done by a twilight sensor.
The ~ 60 x 180 cm large roof can be moved about 60 cm forward in the rain and ensures that everything stays dry.
A wind- and visibility-permeable net-store protects against rain as well as from strong lateral sun. If necessary, it is fastened to the roof frame by means of Velcro. The store has a
lead band at the lower hem and hangs sufficiently low at about 55 cm. Frame and foil can roll u./od. be constructed foldable.
Sporty cyclists might also like this top hatch without electric drive (covered with Perlon fabric instead of PV foil, it only weighs about 700g) ***.
6.) Hand saver
In order to avoid the usual micro-traumata in the wrist, a cylindrical, elastomeric pipe plug connection could be embedded in the steering handles or their transitions to the steering
handle ever to shock mitigation. This stiff-elastic bridge could be different on the weight of a person to be available or different, deeply embedded.
7.) The small cargo
The area behind the sloping backrest provides space for luggage or even for one or two child seats.
Also conceivable would be a lightweight, removable and lockable expanded metal basket with hinged lid, which can be pushed after shopping like a travel case on four castors, with a light
hand. This basket could also be made of plaited willow as a practical 4-wheel trolley.
The child seats would be attached with the same click fastener; they might have a pair of wheels located on both sides of the seat and a guide handle which can be pulled out of the
backrest. So the seat would a buggy after the ride to the children.
8.) Airless tire?
My idea of a new type of tires made of harder rubber compound requires neither the usual rim bead wire nor fabric inserts, neither a hose nor internal air overpressure. These types of
tires already spring through their thick-walled hard rubber cross-section profile (see drawing). In the case of higher loads, these tires can still inflate accordingly.
In addition, a small-finger, medium rolling bead offers the perfect minimized rolling resistance. The sideways, wide, on Gripp optimized, wide auxiliary beads roll only in an inclined
position in contact with the ground. Inflating and "patching pecking" are eliminated in this nock-resistant model.
For tire mounting, these bike tires have a two-piece "screw-on rim", which ensures a perfect and form-fitting tire seat.
And on top of that, the wire and fabric-free material is unproblematic in recycling and recyclable as granules!
Especially on rough terrain and during load transport, these tires are durable and poor in repair.
9.) Effortless to bum a wheel was yesterday ...
Back-friendly side effect on the newly designed bike: the rear wheel can optionally be equipped with 12 tapered fiberglass bow springs or steel leaf
springs instead of conventional spokes an effective shock absorption. After all, other popular shock absorbers for the front, the rear or the seatpost make a bicycle more expensive.
With this approach, due to a given rear-wheel-center of gravity, damping is sufficient (even pushchairs can in principle be equipped with such wheels).
10.) Long Finger Lock
The wheel can be attached and secured against theft with a long steel cable lock that can be pulled out of the frame. A second quick-immobilizer would
be just as practical and practical.
Securing the steel cable lock, battery, storage basket and solar roof should be possible with just one key. Even better would be a remote control lock -
which, as is the case with cars for a long time - locks everything centrally.
Conclusion: This bike would not be an "only good-weather bike" as an innovation bike and will soon be popular on the market. It
should - thanks to the increased safety and multigrade capability - positively enrich the bicycle industry! The innovations can each come into their own.
The general advantages are:
* A Cargorad e.g. gives the deliverer work and is useful against urban smog and traffic jams.
* These bike additions would contribute to further traffic and climate comfort.
* This bike would also be constructible as a tandem, TAXI or family carriage.
Concrete frame designs result depending on the type of use and personal design creation of a fahrrad manufacturer.
Future of our bicycles
On the market available motion alarm u / od App-solutions for Saving u / od again finding a wheel.
New ABS solutions and brake automata will positively influence the number of accidents on the bike in the future.
For storm-proof, vertical parking, a cargo bike has a wide U-bar stand at the front and rear of the load bridge.
In the cargo area, 3-wheel trailers with their own electric motor for heavy-duty transports can be produced (see, for example, carlacargo.de) and their
cover can also be equipped with a DC-supplying film. Also ONOmotion.com offers new to Cargo.
* The approach of placing the pedal in the front wheel has proven to be impractical in terms of steering. For another prototype I have so far lacked the
necessary funds and a specialist company.
** PV films produce e.g. Alwitra-Evalon cSi®, Hanergy®, Nanosolar® or Heliatek®
*** USB plog, navigation integration and a speakerphone, combined with the charge, mileage and speedometer, in a folding and removable display (in
addition to wide rearview mirror) in the roof, would also be good options.
Li / Io batteries already require the new EN 50604-1 standard!

A step description - from testing (ISO 4210) to sales and distribution - is not part of this study.
Even emerging countries were able to realize locally adapted bike productions! Anyway, all 10 innovations are free of
charge. A favorable alternative mobility, with the avoidance of fossil and road construction disadvantages, would certainly be welcome there and necessary.
