Compact Retractable Bikes
The Union Folding Bicycle is Convenient in Every Form

The folding bike is a fantastic theory that sadly fails frequently in practice. Unlike many models on the market that perform both duties badly, the Union Folding Bicycle seems like it could ride well and looks to tuck together quite compactly.

A number of common issues were tackled in this design by Minhan Lin and Weiche Wu to make the two-wheeler more appealing than its disappointing counterparts. The frame is stiffened and thickened to reduce distortion while pedaling, all the while maintaining a slim 8-inch width throughout.

The Union Folding Bicycle transforms quickly and effortlessly, collapsing in on itself and concealing its tiny wheels too. This configuration allows it to be easily carried and even stowed away in a standard-sized locker.
