SLIM AND RETRACTIVe
Whippet Bicycle is all about staying slim (and hopefully stylish too!), meaning it's ideal for storing against the wall... or if you prefer, mounting it on the actual wall itself. We like to think of the main stages of folding as 'the tilt', 'the tuck' and 'the tidy'. No tools are required to fold the bicycle, and the in-line nature of the folding action means the process can be quickly understood and learned.
HOW IT FOLDS
Folding the bicycle involves tilting, tucking and tidying stages.
Tilting: Untighten the front locks on the top tubes and tilt the handlebars forwards and the front wheel backwards between the downtubes.
Tucking: Untighten the rear locks on the top tubes and lower down over the front wheel to meet the down tubes. Pivot the front section up so the front wheel tucks into the rear frame too (the stand's feet will automatically roll out to stabilise everything). Remove the saddle and seatpost and insert into the front steerer tube.
Tidying: Secure the frame together and unlatch the steerer tube lock and fold the handlebar assembly down over the rear wheel. Loosen and twist the handlebars sideways and secure the steerer tube with the seatpost quick-release hook. Remove the pedals (optional) and wheel away!
To unfold the bicycle, simply reverse the above process.
easy to transport
Whippet Bicycle was designed to be rolled along on its rear wheel when folded, using its unique wheel-along handle integrated at just the right place. Being slim and almost symmetrical makes it easy to wheel along in an upright mode. You can also lift it over obstacles, or up and down steps using the folded down steerer tube as a handle.
Wheeling along is preferable to carrying.
You can also easily lift it when you need to.
slimline fold for compact storage
Being so slim, folding reduces the bicycle to less than 30% of its original volume.
