Joey Ruiter is the man behind Inner City Bikes, a company that takes a new approach to the classic bicycle design.

So far, there have been at least 2 prototypes of the Inner City Bike, one with 29″ diamater tires and another with 36″ diamater tires (above). The bike aims to make the bicycle even simpler than it already is with a completely stripped down frame and minimal components. The bike has no chain (it’s essentially an adult big wheel) and positions the rider a bit more awkwardly than your standard bike.

But even with its odd looks, it seems like this 36″ prototype is definitely ridable. I wonder what it feels like to stop (maybe like a fixed gear?).
