LATEST: Calling all existing Tyrell Si owners. We have a FX folding fork kit in case you want to consider doing this retrofit and Tyrell’s Carbon fiber wheelset
Watch the FX video
Weight difference between the std carbon fiber fork to the folding fork is 420gr.
When it comes to finishing and quality of build, I must say the Japanese pay alot of attention to detail.
When we first agreed to stock the Tyrell as part of our range, they satisfied a few things: they were number 1 in Japan, they had mini wheels 20 inch to be specific, NOT a folding model but they were sleek, fast and light. The finishing is impeccable and when we met the man himself – Mr M. Hirose, we now understand why he has so much attention to detail.
An engineer and designer, he loves engineering designs and has very deep thoughts of how a minibike is designed BETTER. Actually not sure about this but we understand that Dahon’s entry into Mini Bikes aka Mid Town Bikes was a response to the Japanese’s love for Alex Moulton and Tyrell.

Not to fret for our dear Tyrell Si owners, we have ordered a front folding fork kit in case you want to try it out to see if this works for you – another core value of MBS! :) LoL
