I got to try out the new Pacific Cycles Integrated Folding (IF) bike designed by Mark Sanders.
This bike is something like a full sized version of the Strida folding bike. Like the Strida, it folds in half quickly, with unique uni-“forks” so the wheels lay flat against each other. James at Bicycle Design is a big fan of Mark Sanders. This bike has the Schlumpf two-speed crank, 26″ tires, and weighs about 28 lbs. When folded it can be toted on its wheels. A fully enclosed chaincase helps to minimize mess from the chain.
Pacific Cycles is lining up USA dealers for this bike at the show. Retail should be somewhere around $2000.
