The bike is a lightweight, hollow-tube cycle that snaps together quickly and easily. Simple twist joints hold the tubes together and, with a little practice, you can assemble or disassemble it in minutes.
But here’s where the really interesting part of the design comes in. With most folding bikes, the frame can easily fold up but then you’ve still got to carry the wheels around with you. The Kit Bike comes with a handsome leather backpack that holds all of the bike’s parts, including the wheels.
There are three compartments in the bag: the center is for the frame parts, and the two outer pockets hold the wheels. The whole thing straps onto your back so you can easily carry it around on the street, on the trail, or on public transport. The design is in the concept stage and might need some further refinement (a more stable frame would be nice), but it’s got serious promise.
