We have seen instances where some old bike or car parts have been used to serve another purpose so seeing an actual car steering wheel being used in lieu of the usual bicycle bars isn’t that surprising. Well of course it does seem interesting to note how they were integrated and as long as they can help folks navigate without much adjustment, well and good.
Japanese studio taphonomy does the trick by implementing an old wooden steering wheel into a bike, something made possible by connecting it directly to the head tube of the bike. It eventually turns the forks – maneuvering the two-wheeled transporter in a similar fashion to that of a vehicle.
Dubbed as the angel ring, the steering wheel does seem cool to maneuver the bike, although a bit of getting used to should be expected. Either way, the whole idea sounds interesting and worth a try if you have a couple of those old steering wheels lying around in the garage right?
