Reinventing the wheels

Small bikes with big performance

Travel with your bike has never been easier. Smaller wheels and infinitely adjustable designs have created two-wheelers that comfortably fit in the tiniest trunk or smallest sailboat.

Giant Revive LX
iXi Dahon Hon Solo Giant Revive LX
Small enough to fit in the trunk of a Prius and clean enough to be ridden in your pre-Labor Day whites. The iXi ditches the traditional bike chain for a Harley Davidson-inspired, grease-free rubber belt — good news for pant cuffs and car interiors alike.
$800-$1,000

A single-speed bike with handcrafted lace wood mud and chain guards, it takes 15 seconds to fold the limited-edition Hon Solo in half. But the coolest feature is one you can’t see–the seat and seat-post turn into a high-capacity foot pump.

Bad back? No problem. Revive LX’s semi-upright position and lumbar support makes pedaling easy. Big hills? Small problem. Standing up is tough, which makes climbing a chore. However, keep the bike on the flats and you’ll discover locomotion in an La-Z-Boy.

Spaceman Bicycle Flask Holster by Ahearne Cycles Pinel & Pinel Trunk and Brompton Bike
Because sometimes electrolytes aren’t enough, the Spaceman Bicycle Flask Holster is built to carry something a little stronger. Old Tour de France riders knew that a touch of brandy could do what a rain jacket could not — make you feel warm and dry on the inside. Let’s see Gatorade do that.

Nickel-plated brass hardware and 51 shades of leather to choose from makes the Pinel & Pinel trunk handsome in its own right. But the real beauty fits inside. The Brompton M6R folding bike features six speeds, full fenders and a rear rack, all available in 10 coordinating colors.
