Freeman Bikes

So this one might not fall under fashion, but in my brain this is a natural progression. Lately I’ve really been wanting to get a bike, especially with gas being as high it is and not having a job, a bike would be a mighty helpful thing to own. Seeing the bikes that Freeman are putting together then is making me drool with lust. Hand built in Missoula, Montana, these bikes aren’t just any ordinary fixed gear bike, this bike can be taken apart with one simple tool and folded into a bag. Basically the frame breaks in half, allowing you to then take all of the pieces and neatly put them away.

I think this is a really rad idea, especially for people who travel a lot and want their bike with them. Plus look at that bag! It’s totally rad! Hopefully over the next few years bikes will continue on this innovative path, especially with recent economic developments. If more people start riding bikes, it can only help things.

    Check out this video on John Yacobellis. The video is obviously dated, but it will make you want to set your car keys aside for a bike even more.

    these look sweet. any idea how much they cost? a couple weeks ago i biked out to LGA to pick up a buddy who’d flown in with his bike. sweet ride out there, and sweet ride back into the city. biking to and from the airport is the way to go!

    same idea, but slightly different. The bike folds up without a tool.

    and here is the same type of back without any gears. (costs around $200 less)

    ^^i have this model and it’s pretty good. It’s really convenient because you can take it with you pretty much anywhere. Sucks not having gears though. Riding up hills is a PAIN.
