Ideal for urban dwellers, folding bikes combine function and style with a compact design that fits into the smallest living spaces. The latest innovation in the field? Burke 20 – an ingeniously designed titanium folding bike that not only offers all of the above, but also suits traveling perfectly. Designed by Mike Yap, creator of the famous Airnimal bikes and founder of Seattle Cycles – Burke 20 features a titanium frame and simple but clever folding system. The double vertical design uses gravity to make folding as easy and as fast as possible. As a result, the user can fold the bike in just 15 seconds, without any tools or the need to disassemble the 20-inch wheels and handlebar. The bike fits into an airline-compliant suitcase or larger bag, allowing the owner to take it anywhere by plane. Or train, boat, or a two-seater car.
The rollable Burke 20 weighs only 18 lbs, making transportation easy. It also comes with top Shimano / SRAM components, 135mm rear dropout spacing, leather saddle, and a wide gear range, offering the best blend of premium parts, high-quality materials, and ingenious design. Made in the USA by Lynskey Performance, the bike is available now on the company’s website. Prices start at $5,500. Photographs© Seattle Cycles.
