Flatbike Guarantee

The ultimate campus bike is designed for folks who appreciate a good ride on a full-size bike, but don’t have room to store a bike or even time for bike maintenance.

It all starts with a ruggedness-certified, light weight CHANGE folding road frame, ISO-ceritfied carbon fork, and 700c Shimano wheels. Then we add a Shimano SLX  mountain derailleur with 11-speed cassette that goes up to 42 teeth to conquer even the steepest local hills with just one derailleur. And we combine that with an Alfine crank that protects the teeth and your pant legs from those annoying chain catches (No leg straps needed!).

Then we go all-in on convenience. We use Tannus airless tires so you never have to change a flat or even remove your rear wheel (No pump needed!). We add a Satori shock seat post to absorb any road bounce. Add a locking axle so you–and only you–can remove your rear wheel easily (No need to lock up your rear wheel!). And then we round it off with Shimano pop-off pedals and a folding THINstem to make your bike thin enough to fit in a full bike rack or against a wall.

And because it folds in half for easy transportation, this is a bike that fits in anyone’s trunk, car-share, RV or cubicle.

It’s biking made easier!


  1. Good specs: A perfect mix of comfort and speed for long, fast rides.
  2. It’s house-trained: keep it conveniently indoors overnight for longer life and less theft.
  3. It’s portable: No car racks needed. Use easily with any car, Uber, or taxi.
  4. It’s the perfect match for an urban lifestyle with limited storage room.
  5. It’s the perfect match for a surburban lifestyle where safe riding may be a car’s ride away.
