Meet Frii, the recycled plastic bicycle dreamed up by Dror Peleg

Made from plastic waste, the Frii Bicycle is Dror Peleg's dreamy solution to urban transportation. As Peleg explains, "components would be injection molded into modular shapes that snap together to form a strong, lightweight and very colorful single-speed bike for quick trips through the city streets."

The Frii snaps together like a K'Nex set, with the body of the bicycle being the largest component. All of the other bits and pieces simply snap into place. At the bottom of the split frame sits the crankset, which is connected to the rear wheel by a belt. The forks for the 20-inch plastic wheels are purposely made short for added strength and the solid tires are injected over the rims during the manufacturing process. The all-plastic saddle looks positively painful, but Peleg says the Frii is no long-hauler.

Peleg envisions the Frii Bicycle used in cities where local government can manufacture it from local waste, as opposed to importing plastics from abroad. It's a dreamy idea, especially when millions of used bikes exist, but we applaud Seleg's creative solution to curb our plastic waste problem.
