Locust Folding Bike

Last year, TREND HUNTER featured an Origami Bike… Okay, I’m fooling nobody, it was my trend and now I am promoting it again… Either way, I was impressed to see this new folding bike from Locust.

"Both wheels have overhung mounting. After releasing safety lock nuts wheels can be turned around relevant axis into the frame. Because of folding of the rear wheel momentum transfer from crankset to rear wheel must be divisible. Common chain system is replaced by belt system with outer toothing. Belt is mounted on two rollers. Both "chainwheel" and pinion have outer toothing as well. It altogether ensures right direction of turning and divisibility of the whole system." - Yanko Design Stats for Locust Folding Bike Trending: Older & Warm
