You know the old saying ‘Don’t try to reinvent the wheel’? Well, Sam Pearce, from Nottinghamshire, England, really managed to do this with his loopwheels. The idea came in 2007 and in 2009 the first basic prototype was created. Still, it took Sam four years to develop and test the loopwheel that we see today.

That doesn’t mean we can’t admire them, so take a look at these sexy wheels!
