What looks like it's straight out of Tron is industrial designer, Michael Shrewsbury's "The Glide" bicycle.

"Breaking from the monotony of traditional bicycle shape, designer Michael Shrewsbury has come up with a track bike concept by the name “The Glide” that features a frame made in nano carbon. Moving on hubless wheels that ride along a channel in the frame against sealed bearings, the track bike includes an internal crank set to save your clothes from rolling in the chain. In addition, the belt drive turns a cog mounted in the rear of the bike that meshes with the rear wheel causing it to turn and give you forward or reverse motion..." www.thedesignblog.org
