Van Hulsteijn bikes

Postby y3ntil » Thu Sep 08, 2011 5:31 pm

Just thought I'd link people to these rather different looking bikes coming out of Holland.

I think the kinda look like the old softride bikes, kinda strange, kinda cool.

anyway, enjoy.

Jeez...they're pretty weird. Reminds me of those TT bikes. Where do I hang my panniers?

I like it and I don't. I like it because it's different and it's great to see people design things thinking outside the box. What I don't like about it, I think the semi circle from the rear stay to the seat post is too large. If it was smaller so the top tube wasn't so high then it might look a little tighter, that large void from the back wheel to the seat looks too large.... I don't know just my 2 cents.
Maybe it had to be that large or the smaller the bend the less strength it had. Don't know as I'm not design engineer. Maybe the guy just liked it that big.
But I reckon in the flesh "steel" it would look pretty cool. Would certainly catch people's attention as you went by.
