A bicycle that fits your body properly is an absolute pleasure to ride, but many people just don’t buy the bike that’s right for them. Alternately, they’ll buy one that’s right for their height, but won’t adjust the seat, bars, etc. to suit their own individual proportions, and end up setting the bicycle aside because it’s not comfortable enough to use on a regular basis. Enter the Universal Bike created by Brooklyness. With its carbon fiber adjustable frame, the makers of this fabulous ergonomic bicycle aim to bring all the benefits of a custom-built bike to a greater percentage of the population.
The bike’s design allows the entire piece to be customized, from the bike’s length to the angles of the front fork and seat tube. By making these adjustments to suit the individual rider’s body, weight is distributed evenly and comfortably, relieving stress on contact points (pedals, handlebar, and seat). Brooklyness currently has a Kickstarter campaign going to cover initial costs of creating tooling, parts, components, etc., so if this project is of interest to you, consider backing them (and pass the word along)!
