Exercise bike "Ciclotte" wouldn’t appear out of place in a design museum

Designs of exercise machines have changed a lot since the old days. Among them, I think this exercise bike named "Ciclotte" wouldn’t appear out of place in a design museum say in Milan. It is made by designer Luca Sccieppati. He re-designed a bike called "Ciclo"(which I unfortunately couldn't find a picture of…) also designed by him. I wouldn't be amazed if this "Ciclotte" becomes a permanent display at the design museum in Milan.

When you push the pedals the gears mesh with each other, like a mechanical watch, and makes 'the epicycloid crank' rotate the main wheel. (an 'epicycloid' is a plane curve produced tracing the path of a chosen point of a circle which rolls without slipping around a fixed circle)  This then generates a magnetic field under the users thigh.

I daily train a lot, and I have a bench press, some barbells and dumbbells in my living room, and it doesn't look so good. An exercise bike will probably be used say once a week or so, but I bet this highly designed "Ciclotte" will keep my room look stylish even when its not in use.

  1. Have you ever thought about including a little bit more than just your articles? I mean, what you say is important and all. Nevertheless just imagine if you added some great graphics or video clips to give your posts more, "pop"! Your content is excellent but with pics and clips, this post could definitely be one of the very best in its niche. Wonderful post! mindball game for sale
