With or without a CHANGE bike, we also offer components that can make your biking experience more enjoyable. Among others, these include:

Pop-off SPD Pedals
Pop-off MTB Pedals

Pop-off Pedals

Pop-off pedals give you a flatter profile when storing your bike and helps you avoid catching your shins in your apartment, garage, or cubicle. It takes only seconds to remove them or put them on your bicycle. They’re also great if you share a bike and one person likes toe cages and the other one doesn’t, or maybe you like one pedal type for long, smooth rides and the other for unpredictable trails.

Usage: For any bike, anytime.

  • Standard threaded for any crank
  • Removable in seconds to save space (or your shins)
  • Available in flat pedals, MTB pedals, and SPD pedals
  • Interchangeable in seconds

Folding Stems

Folding Stems

This is a great add-on when you don’t have enough width for the handlebars. In keeping with Flatbike’s mission, echoed in its name, this add-on stem pivots handlebars 90 degrees in seconds with no tool so your bike can easily fit against a wall.

NOTE: These replace “threadless” stems. If your bike is older, and has a “quill” stem instead, you’ll need a threadless adapter first.

Usage: For any bike of matching handlebar size
