Portable Transportation: The Velocino Bicycle from Abici

Inhabitat

Short on space in your apartment, but still want a bike to get around town on? This might be the perfect solution—and one of the coolest-looking, conversation-starting, stare-drawing bicycle we've seen in a while.

Inspired by bikes from the 30s and 40s, the designers of this modern-day mini bike were surprised to learn that the original design for this tiny bicycle came from Mussolini, who wanted folks to have a bike that they could ride around, then store easily at home.

It seems like a fun way to get around town—though we're not sure we'd want to take it up (or down) many steep hills. Find out more at Inhabitat.
