Bigfish is the new European entry in the folding bike category.
Although most folding bikes are made these days in Asia, the Bigfish is strictly a European product. A combination of old world charm and hip Euro fashion, the Bigfish is notable for a variety of reasons.
Unlike most folding bikes with small wheels, the Bigfish has appealing, cool & curvy looks. It's folding style makes it compact for storage and portability yet unusually thin when folded.
The Bigfish folding bike has the geometry of a full size bike; yet, for storage or transport, it folds quickly to about one fourth the size of a typical bike. Like Brompton and Mobiky folders that cost twice as much, the Bigfish rolls when folded. It's also the only bike with a solid, 4 point stance when folded, making it the least likely of any bike to get knocked over when not in use.
Made in Italy (the land of Bianchi), the Bigfish is well made with specially machined parts. Unfold the bike and it "click, clacks" together, providing audible reassurance that everything is locked in place and the bike is ready to ride.
On the Bigfish, the wheels are designed to fold and nest within the tubes of the bicycle frame. Not only does this protect the wheels when the bike is folded, it also makes the bike more durable. The rear coaster brake requires no cable or levers (just pedal backwards) and the gears are protected inside the rear wheel hub, decreasing maintenance and maximizing the life of the drivetrain.
Folded or unfolded, the Bigfish fits in. Take it to an outdoor cafe, tuck it beside your desk at the office, or simply ride it for a breath of fresh air.
The Bigfish folds small enough to fit in the trunk of a Mini; yet, rides like a comfort bike with 26" wheels. When folded, you can roll it down the aisle of a transit bus. When riding, you can change gears whether moving or stopped, pedaling or not. And if you get caught in the rain, the alloy rain fenders will keep you clean.
