Victor Bike

   This is a concept bicycle from Canadian designer Christophe Robillard. This bike has a craaaaazy set of tubes:

Single seat stay

Opposite chain stay

   This bike has a crazy cool design - there is a right (drive side) seat stay, and a left chain stay, and no seat tube!

8 Tubes

5 Tubes

   I do like that without a seat tube, you can jam that rear wheel right above the bottom bracket. The article here says that it requires less material - but as the commenters point out, you have to compensate elsewhere for the lack of support. Also, I think that that argument falls somewhat flat. There certainly isn't a movement for fewer bicycles due to a steel shortage.
