It started back in 2009 when architect and co-founder Martin Angelov moved into a small apartment, and had to put his road bike into storage. Inspired by an architectural competition on new means of transport, he started sketching ideas for a new kind of bicycle based vehicle. A few initial sketches turned into a bunch of different designs, and eventually—over a dozen full-scale prototypes. In early 2014, over 400 amazing Kickstarter supporters helped the launch of the Halfbike.
Kolelinia is a startup company with a young and creative team, guided by their passion for the outdoors and the community that has made the company possible, while continuing the search for alternative transport systems. Martin Angelov is the inventor of Halfbike and co-founder of Kolelinia with Mihail Klenov. Both are architects, passionate cyclists and have solid background in design and manufacturing.
