The love for bicycles prompts bike-connoisseurs all over the world to store their wheels in their apartments. Unfortunately, conventional bikes are often too bulky and folding bikes are just not quite “real bikes”. ThinBike’s concept is to provide a full-size bicycle with inventive and elegant solutions for inner city traffic, like an integrated taillight or a bell built into the brake lever. In addition, by folding up the handlebar and pedals, ThinBike takes it’s rightful place in even the smallest of rooms. The Gates Carbon DriveTM combined with a two-gear hub always assures the right drive in city turmoil.

This urban bike tackles the concept of urban cycling. It is not a foldable bike but the whole inventive mechanism, which allows you to hang it on the wall, is very smart in a beautiful static way. The bike itself and the use of it are incredibly comfortable and very refined – it is quite monochromatic and very graphic in the execution. A beautiful appearance and a nice aesthetic for a functional object would make you would happy to hang it on the wall.
