The growing number of people going "Green" or getting physically fit has been increasing. Hipster's and the fixed bikes, cool dudes and the folding bike's, it's all about two wheels. I personally say, "any wheels beat the heels." Well I came across some cool bikes.

in partnership with BMC have made a limited edition bicycle. In the words of Jay-Z, "All black everything"! The bike was made in a limited quantity of 30 bicycles and were race tested in Monaco. This bike is sleek and made with carbon fiber.
I bet if those kids from the E.T. movie had this bike they would've never got seen by the police.

The next bike is a called the Compactable Urban Bicycle. The bike was designed by Victor M. Allen
The bike is truly a "Folding Bike".

The Wheel is composed by six modules, each one has a double pivot in the joints, this allows the wheel to fold and become smaller, the spokes are contained in the inner structure of the wheel, when you unfold the system, the spokes rotate to the center of the mechanism where it attach to the center of the wheel. The bike structure is composed by expandable modules, each one collapses to a smaller dimension and then this modules align by the rotation of the axis in the joint of the structure, to keep in position all the structure is used an special part in a form of an X that aligns all the modules to their position.

In The meantime enjoy the weather, stay in shape, and shout to the Honey's whipping those bikes through NYC!
