Folding bikes – great video

by

Take a look at this video for an idea of how small a bike can fold. The informal competition involved cyclists folding the bike, running a short distance with it, sitting down, putting it back together and riding off. Each competitor was timed. The winner was able to fold the bike in an amazingly short time but had the chain drop when he unfolded it. A number of different bikes are featured and the video gives a good idea of how they fold and unfold. You can find it here:

Well worth watching the 7 min. video if you have any interest in these bikes at all.
