Folding bikes!

Folding bikes are a great niche for those who do multi-modal transport, such as combining bike/bus or bike/train trips. They’re also great for those who travel a lot by airplane and want to take a bike along, without paying baggage fees. We did a two-week long cycle trip in Italy on folding bikes recently, and we had a lot of fun! And the bikes were easy to take on the train with us to get from one place to the next (if it was too far to practically bike). A couple pictures from our tour of Volterra on the bikes are shown below.

It looks like we’ll be carrying a brand new style of folding bike, that folds in 1 second to a neat little package! We will be evaluating the bike for durability and quality. As soon as we’ve had a good look at it, we’ll post some pictures here.
