Piggy back and ride

Published: Wednesday 31 January 1996

Two brothers from Hamburg, Germany, have invented a new type of pedal scooter. This new innovation on two wheels is not a replacement for the normal scooter, but a complement (Design Review, Vol 4, Issue 15).

The 'Shuttle' (as it is called) is portable and once it folds up, it measures just 100 cm x 50 cm. It weighs just nine kg. The frame is made of tubula steel. It constitutes racing handlebars, high-pressure tyres, lightweight aluminium wheel rims, front and rear brakes and a mudguard.
