The Yasujiro Speedbike :: Asphalt Gravity Concept Bike

By October 31, 2012Bicycles

I like everything about this gravity speedbike. It looks fast just standing still. Gravity bikes are like the gliders of the bicycle world. It’s you and your brass, your bike, and gravity.

“The inspiration of the speedbike comes from the 50cc racing motorcycles from the 60’s to the 80’s. These amazing bikes where incredibly small, and suffered form a lack of power. They were very difficult to ride efficiently because the horse power was available on a very tight RPM zone. ”

From CycleEXIF:
Gravity bike racing keeps gaining momentum, even after 30 years in existence. There’s an increasing number of ‘official’ events being held on hillsides all over the world, with a growing number of privateers who are developing gravity bikes in sheds, workshops and garages. The Tange tubing company is working with a number of partners to release a propriety frame: the Yasujiro Speed Bike.
