California based company, Mobiky, has release the world’s first foldable bike — the Genius. It supposedly took Mobiky 2 years of research and over $1 million in R&D to develop, so the least you can do is read this blog post.
The Mobiky Genius is a 3 speed city bike and can collapse into half its size in 2-3 seconds. The height is adjustable to fit almost any size person.
The Genius’s dimensions are 50″ x 18″ x 41″ and the bike collapses into 25″ x 12″ x 32″. That’s a great size for people like me who live in a small townhouse and would love to stash their bike in a closet.
Unfortunately, however, its 29 lb weight and not very impressive biking specs won’t win over any real biking enthusiasts. But for the casual biker who can afford the $999, its ability to store in your trunk or closet may just do the trick.
Oh and it looks nerdy.
