The title might make more sense if you add "From Space" to the end of it. At least that's the first impression I had. The iXi bike is very cool in its design, and quite functional as well. You can fold it up and fit it in the back of your car. With no greasy chain, you don't have to worry about putting it in your trunk and ruining the leather seats of your Mini Cooper. Cool.
"Unique design details like folding pedals, detachable handlebars and stem make the iXi ideal for tight spaces such as hallways, closets and cubicles. Other thoughtful features like the pump and repair kit included inside the seat post compartment are unique to iXi. There's even a rain poncho hidden behind the front frame cap, in case of a surprise rainstorm. The iXi is available in two models, the one-piece iXi and a breakaway model that features a patented Interlock Jointâ„¢. This unique joint lets the rider take the iXi apart in seconds using an on-board Allen wrench, making for simple, compact storage in even the smallest car trunk. The iXi also has a wide array of accessories allowing the user to customize the bike to his or her needs; users can even buy an iXi cupholder to carry a latte or Apple Ipod."
