The quest to find the perfect bicycle that can both fold away and doesn’t make the cyclist look like he is riding a scooter with slightly larger wheels may have come to an end. The iF Mode folding bicycle has a sleek, never been seen before design.
The wheels on the iF are a full 28-inches, yet they are able to squeeze up against each other to form a smart sleek package. The designer, Mark Sanders, describes this as, ‘single-action automatic fold’, which basically means everything collapses in one swift movement, the frame, handlebars and the wheels. No surprise then that he won the ‘2008 Eurobite Award’ and the ‘2009 Product Design Gold Award’ (along with the Apple iPhone and Macbook Air).
