Which bike is right for you?

702B Folded BikeToday’s full-size folding bikes have come a long way since the first portable bicycles that appeared in the late 1800’s. Or even since the more recent tiny-wheel folders.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                            Flatbike currently offers six models of folding full-size bikes and numerous accessories to help make biking easier. Here are ridable, everyday bikes that fold conveniently into Uber trunks, elevators, stairwells, metro trains, apartments, office cubicles—places where a typical bike gets in the way.

What would make your life easier? All bikes come in multiple frame sizes and include pop-off pedals.

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

Hard Case for Shipping

Hard Case for Shipping

If you’re transporting your CHANGE bike by car, bus, train, or private plane, the included soft case should work fine. But, if you’re worried, or if you’re using commercial air, you’ll want an abuse-proof hard case so you can travel or ship your bike and not worry about it being damaged in transit.

Usage: For any CHANGE bike of any size

  • Ship your bike on commercial air (oversized, but rugged)
  • NOTE: For better rates and more convenience, use BikeFlights
  • Lockable, with built-in padding
  • Roll on built-in casters (use as your luggage cart?)
  • Folds down to 1/3 the size when not in use
