WE TEAMED WITH THE EXPERTS IN FOLDING BICYCLES

Not all folding bikes are created equal.  When we conceived of a folding cargo bike, we turned to our friends at Tern to recommend a model to pair with the FreeRadical.  The C21 is stiff, trust worthy, and light - essential qualities of the ultimate commuter vehicle.

FBL JOINT IS SECURE AND DURABLE

The FBL (Four-Bar Linkage) Joint is a tried and true design that keeps a frame securely locked. It features a forged and precision machined lever designed to offer a smooth surface for fingers. All other hardware is stainless steel for durability.

 

EXTENDED WITH OUR PATENTED FREERADICAL

As they say, in certain bike shops, “steel is real.”  We agree.  That's why all our bike frames and the FreeRadical are made of Chromoly - strong but supple, light yet stiff.  Eminently repairable if you plan to take the path less traveled.

ALLOY RACKS ADD STIFFNESS, NOT HEFT

To achieve the alchemy of only 12.5 additional pounds of bike weight, but 250 lbs of carrying capacity, we select the right material for the job.  Our racks are made of 6061 aircraft aluminum for their stiffness but light-weight.

FLIGHT DECK DESIGNED FOR YOUR BACK SEAT DRIVERS
