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
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.
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.
