An Origami Bike

 - Feb 7, 2006

I came across this bike in a random adventure in Vancouver last week. The bike folds up just like origami so you can carry it around under your arm, stick in your trunk, bring on the bus, stuff into a cramped closet or throw down a small hole. The bike can be ordered from Bazooka Bikes, they have lots of different models and the ones I test drove all passed the test, especially the 21 speed Bazooka Navigator.  - IC

From the merchant:

The Explorer - X is a 20" wheel Aluminum comfort bike with superior riding performance. A fine crafted machine to carry around with great ease that only weighs 25 pounds and takes 10 seconds to fold. This is an excellent folding comfort bike that has an aluminum frame, fork and rims. It has the Baooka plush comfort seat for added comfort, Mudguards to protect your clothing, Shimano Revo shifters and a Shimano freewheel. The 6 speeds will provide plenty of gears as you explore a new port or campground on your travels!
