ThinBike Folds Flat to Fit in Tight Spaces

Bikes these days come in all shapes and sizes but this ingenious idea is the most effective and quickest way to store your bike. It could slot behind the sofa or even slide under the bed! Designed by Graham Hill, founder of Treehugger, the ThinBike goes from a full-sized 22-inch, white bike to a lean, clean, space-saving machine with a simple twist of the handlebars. Working with Schindelauer, the trick to the ThinBike’s slim line is in the handlebars. With just a simple twist the handles lock to the side when not being used, and if that 8-inch profile isn’t slim enough for you, the bike’s pedals fold down to avoid any pant snags. The bike also trades a greasy chain for a carbon belt drive that will keep your clothes as spic and span as the bright white bike itself. The grease-free bike weighs in at just 18 lbs, so hauling it up your six-story walk-up and slipping it into a small nook in your apartment will be a piece of cake.

Sometimes the simple ideas are the most efficient. This is certainly a great example.
