It's A Breakthrough!

It has been secret until now. We wanted to tell you, the Bike Friday community, first! Be the first to own one.

Hanna & Alan Scholz will tell you about it in the video below:
Hello from Hanna and Alan,

We're super excited to share a significant breakthrough with you. The World's First Backpack Bike (and it is under 20lbs!).

For 24 years we have been designing bikes with a mission to support your personal freedom, health, and adventure, while building community and protecting the environment. Our previous world's first was the suitcase bike.

The next generation of improvement: a truly mobile-friendly bike to fit a mobile-friendly life in a mobile-friendly world.

This bike is an industry first weighing as little as 15 lbs. with the same excellent ride quality and sizing options of other Bike Fridays.

As a Bike Friday customer you are part of the Bike Friday family. You are very special to us: you have believed in us, supported us, and helped us become who we are. Join us in birthing this breakthrough innovation.

We need your feedback. Please fill out the survey below after you have watched the video and tell us what you think!
