Now Fair Companies—the folks who have brought us video on everything from Ewok Villages in Oregon to electric bike RVs—have released a new video in which Graham explains the thinking behind the Thin Bike.
Basically consisting of a lightweight, full-size bike frame with foldable pedals and a quick release, fold-flat handlebar mechanism, none of this is exactly rocket science. It's just a clever approach to identifying and reducing the sticking points that make regular bikes harder to carry and more of a pain in the ass to store. (For a retrofit system for installing foldable handlebars, check out the Flipphandle.)
The addition of a grease-free carbon drive is also a nice touch given that the bike is designed for carrying up and down stairs and on mass transit. After all, I hear these trendy urbanites don't like to get too dirty.
All-in-all a nice bike from our esteemed founder, and another great video from Fair Companies. Check out @kirstendirksen and @faircompanies for more great videos, and while you are at it, why not follow Graham Hill and find out what he's cooking up next too?
