Wallpaper Magazine's Bikes Fold into a Small Leather Bag

Illustration for article titled iWallpaper/i Magazines Bikes Fold into a Small Leather Bag

Other foldable, transportable bikes exist, but they tend to be of the city-commuter style which just makes them look foolish when riding. Wallpaper magazine commissioned the bike above, which is capable of folding down and squeezing into a leather tote.

They're limited edition, and have a suitably "Wallpaper" price-tag to go with them—the "International" bike above, by Japanese makers Kinfolk and Portland-based spray-painters Coat, costs £2,450, and then the bag (designed by Nivaldo de Lima) will set cyclists back another £2,500.

That will quickly turn into one helluva pricey morning commute. [Wallpaper via BornRich]

"the city-commuter style which just makes them look foolish when riding."

I think the moron who pays +$5K for a bike that takes 15 minutes to assemble is the one that looks foolish.

If you are going on a 20 minute trip then you will spend 50 minutes traveling. My $200 Dahon assembles in 1 minute so my trip would take 22 minutes. I don't think an Olympian could beat that head start.
