A Better Folding Cycle

The Union is a folding cycle that you can carry easily in public transport systems like buses and trains. Folded up, it’s more like backpack that doesn’t weigh you down. This 8-inch folding bicycle slams down in a jiffy and its most defining feature is that it combines the stem with the headlight and the saddle with taillight, for better visibility and safety.
Designers: Weiche Wu & Minhan Lin

Some of the issues that this sleek cycle tackles are:
  • Most folding bicycles have distorting problems while riding, so the framework of the bike must be integrated
  • After folding the bike, we “pull” or “drag” the bike instead of hand-carry it
  • Easy to carry on to the public transportation after folding
  • The process of folding should be easy and quick
  • The brake light and reflect light have reached the standard of safety
