Industrial Design./OFGB City Bike
OFGB City Bike is a fixed gear bike, usefull to move quickly trought the city. It is designed with a futuristic design and it uses innovative technologies. Actually it is called “City Bike” because it is has some interesting solutions like the front and the tail led lamps. They are integrated into the frame in order to have a clean design. The acronimous “OFGB” means Orbital Fixed Gear Bike. The bike is inspired to steath fighters.
Hubless wheels are already existing, most of them are prototypes. This design is an evolution of the OFGB Proto 1 and it wants to optimize this technology reducing overall component dimensions and internal frictions. Another interesting solution adopted for this project is about transmission.
It is a belt trasmission. This system allows to have smoother movements between the crans and the rear pulley, reducing stress on the components and noises. OFGB City Bike is a new frame design. It will be made of prepreg carbon fiber in order to reduce the total weight.
