Bike Friday emphasizes riding characteristics rather than foldability. It packs into a suitcase and “rides like your best bike” according to Ed Pavelka, former senior editor of Bicycling magazine. The company’s co-founders and designers hail from a racing background, rather than a traditional engineering background. The company history says they sought to invent a packable bicycle that rode well over serious distances, loaded or unloaded, to save airline baggage fees.
The range includes tandems, triplets, road, mountain and touring models, a freight bicycle, and a bicycle that adjusts in sizing. Each fits into one or two standard suitcases that can be converted to a towable trailer.
Most Bike Fridays are built to order, and all are built in their USA Eugene factory
