Single Hand Cycling Concept

Instead of redesigning the entire bicycle, I worked on developing only a new steering system to solve the problem.
Preliminary sketch: hand grip is moved to the centre for better balance.
Exploration of single L-shaped extension to enable easy mounting of brake levers. Gear mounting/use will be difficult because most systems are right/left hand specific for operation of front and rear derailleurs/gears: eg. right hand operates rear gears & left hand operates rear gears. Possible solutions include using a gear hub which works like an automatic transmission.
