I’m a bit late on this one but I always like the concept of spokeless wheels. Hopefully one day it’ll become a reality.  I know its been done, but we’re still far from being anything I'd consider engineering elegance.

You might think that is wholly impractical but hey, at least they’re getting somewhere.  This bike below looks great but is simply powered by “wishful thinking.”
