Most bicycles, whether conventional or contemporary, present a simple and minimal design, and don’t leave much scope for modification. However, the new hinged recumbent bike by Daniel Finkelstein is a bike with a difference that changes or shifts its position according to the needs of the rider. Entitled the “Altercycle,” the latest bicycle by the Canadian designer makes use of a gas spring, used in an average office chair, which helps in shifting (from high to low and vice versa) the position. When riding in the city, users may opt for the higher position that not only allows better visibility but also reduces the size of the wheelbase for easy movement. While on the other hand, the lower position allows the benefits of a conventional recumbent bike on a downtown ride.
