We get this question a lot, and in a word, no. We found the CHANGE bike brand after scouring the Internet for someone who delivered a non-clunky, easy-riding, certified-rugged, fast-folding bike. We are now its U.S. distributor.
CHANGE Bike has been in business since 2010, and has exhibited at the Taipei International Cycle Show in Taiwan, Ausbike in Australia, Eurobike in Germany, and Interbike in the US. They have since expended to include a full range of hybrid and mountain bikes, all using an internationally patented folding design and featuring the EN 14766 European standard certification for mountain and road bike reliability–a claim that no other folding bike manufacturer can make!
CHANGE bikes make excellent touring bikes, as these adventure photos show, from Iceland…
Even the Tibetan plateau!
You’d never know you were looking at folding bikes.
And that’s the point. These aren’t folding bikes that are full-sized. These are high-performance, rugged touring and mountain bikes that fold up when you need them smaller. Put them in a plane, or a train, or a taxi, and then continue your journey, wherever your explorations take you.
It’s convenient cycling, redefined.
