Chris Boardman’s Theft-proof & Puncture-free Bicycle

Posted: Wednesday, August 12, 2009 by greeni in misc


Olympic cyclist Chris Boardman shows off his unique bike design which he not only says will be common in 20 years but is also theft-proof and features puncture-free tires. The futuristic-looking creation boasts a complete carbon fiber body with a built-in locking anti-theft mechanism which can only be activated by the touch of the bike owner’s fingerprints. Addition features include a calorie monitoring system, battery-powered assistance, and aforementioned puncture-free tires that have the ability to self-inflate.

Boardman had this to say:

“It could be built now if there was a will. All the technologies are already there, it’s just that nobody’s put them all together before.”
