Can You Tell What’s Wrong With These Bicycles?

As it turns out, most people cannot draw a bike.

Velocopedia is an amusing project by Italian designer Gianluca Gimini. For three years, Gimini has been asking his friends to draw bicycles, which he then renders in 3D. The result is a pretty hilarious reproduction of some very dysfunctional looking bikes. What Gimini has discovered is that most people simply do not know how to draw a bicycle.

The bikes below are missing some pretty crucial parts, or have them incorporated in all the wrong places. Rendered as real (and might I add, quite stylish) bicycles, you end up with some seriously impractical machines that would be pretty interesting to take for a test ride.
