Silk Cycles folding tour/road bike. The same bike has been mentioned in my tumblr site a couple of times. Now the same bike is at NAHBS 2013 and here are the super sexy photos from urbanvelo.
I have never wanted a prototype bicyle so much before!! This Silk Cycles packable bicycle is a result of smaller wheeled 406 version of “Porter Silk” which has been made in a small scale for the Japanese niche market. I don’t see this beautifuly made foldable travel bike will be avaialbe in a lare number for some time (unless Giant bike buys the patent and mass-produce them hopefully in steel). The same designer produced Giant’s MR-4 folding bike. I think in this decade of the 21st century a high quality bicycles should be designed with more portabibilty and stashability in mind.
