The Ultimate Travel Bike

The 16 inch miniB is our smallest and lightest bike, which makes it the perfect to take along when you travel. Thanks to its super-compact folding size, the miniB can easily fit into any size vehicle or even a standard sized suitcase. The lightweight aluminum components of the miniB make it super light so it can be carried around with ease.

Despite its small size, the miniB has the same high-quality parts that you'd expect on a Downtube folding bike. The miniB's Shimano Nexus 8-speed internal hub is paired with a Gates CDX belt drive system and has a gear range of 307%, which is the equivalent of a traditional derailleur system.

Replacing the traditional derailleur system with the internal hub/belt system eliminates one of the weakest points of traditional bikes, which is the derailleur system. In addition to making the entire system stronger and more vibrant, the internal hub system is clean and grease-free. This means no more black streaks on your legs or pants. Storage is much more convenient as you won't have to worry about the grease smearing everything that you store the bike with.

Shimano's high-end internal hub system results in a super-smooth shifting that makes riding the MiniB so smooth and enjoyable.

To take convenient even further, the super-lightweight aluminum frame of the MiniB has an integrated headset and bag interface on the headtube (custom bags coming soon!). The rack, kickstand, and rear fender are included as free accessories with the MiniB. You can carry your belongings around with the MiniB's rack while the rear fender will help you stay clean even on the dirtiest terrains.

The top-tier Tektro V brakes and the machined-sidewall rims on the MiniB provide a flawless braking experience even in the most difficult conditions.

If you are looking for a quality portable bike to accompany you on your travels, the MiniB is what you're looking for. Whether you're headed for the airport, railway station or going on your next boating or RV adventure, the MiniB is a travel partner that you'll never get bored of.

Great service

I just received the Mini and did a few modifications to it. While I have ridden too few miles to give a quality review of the bike, I will write that Yan has been more than helpful responding to e-mails and providing good customer service. In our case, the handlebar base never arrived. I e-mailed Yan and in less than 24 hours, a new handlebar base was mailed to us.

Thanks for the mini

I just wanted to take a moment to thank you for making your "mini" available to me. I am short, and really didn't mind paying more for a bike that would fit me better. I continue to be impressed with this fun bike, and am SO GLAD that I bought it when I did! Thank you! This bike is now 6 years old and going strong, and I still like this little package! It keeps up fine with the larger frame downtube, or other touring type bikes, and I'm glad to say that its still exactly what I need!
