Now the Mini gets its own Mini Folding Bikeby Shalu Pillai
It’s like the little safe-driver bikes, this one is twice as good during traffic congestions. First there is the Mini – probably the most effective means of transport in those busy roads, and then there’s the collapsible bike designed by Mini itself. The Mini Folding Bike is built around a lightweight aluminum frame that easily folds in a matter of seconds and can be placed inside a car’s trunk or even carried onto public transport with a minimal fuss. The crossbar, handlebars and pedals fold up and the gel seat retracts to save space.
The bike weighs a measly 11 kilograms (24 pounds) and packs eight gears, 20-inch wheels with mud guards, an under-seat pouch, and a Teflon-coated chain. Take a look at the gallery below to see how she folds.
