In most cities, biking is a wonderful form of commuting. However, one minute you can be riding your beautiful vintage bicycle to the market and the next minute you’re schlepping the 35 lbs. of metal and rubber down an escalator, squeezing through an entry bar while swiping your card and finally begging forgiveness from your fellow passengers as you maneuver your way into the subway car. Quite the feat considering the bulging backpack of groceries you’re also carrying. At this moment you realize you need something more portable, collapsible and lightweight.
As part of our Bike Month Series, we’d like to introduce to you some collapsible bicycles. Although some of the concept designs are quite hilarious, we think you’ll agree they’re all practical for the urban dweller or even the adventure seeker.
