This 16 inch mini folding bike is our smallest and lightest bike, making it perfect for travel. It is super compact to fit in the trunk of a vehicle or into a standard sized suitcase. You will fall in love with the 8 speed or 11sp Shimano internal hub which is paired with a Gates CDX belt drive system. The gear range on the 8sp is 307%, which is equivalent to having traditional derailleur system. While the 11sp has a whopping 408% gear range which is perfect for any terrain. The internal hub/belt system is new to the bicycle industry. Rear derailleurs are known to be the weakest link on a bicycle, removing it makes the entire system stronger and more vibrant. Additionally, by using a belt system it is grease-free, hence there can never be a black streak on your leg, and you need not worry about messing up any place you leave your bike. Shifting will be butter smooth as is standard with Shimano's high end internal hub systems.
It is super lightweight because everything on the bike is aluminum and the miniB (Belt) employs a Gates Carbon belt and cogs. You will really fall in love with the idea of having frames made from lightweight aluminum and an integrated headset, and bag interface on the headtube ( we have custom bags on the way ). We are now including free accessories on all miniB's: a rack, kickstand, and rear fender. The rack is perfect to carry loads, and the rear fender will keep you clean even when the terrain gets dirty. A font fender is not necessary since the frame will act as a front fender.
The Tekro V brakes in combination with the machined-sidewall rims make the quality means it stops super fast.
Overall, this mini bike is really small, light and the drive train is nearly maintenance-free. This is the ideal bike for a boaters, RV'rs, rail and for airport travel.
