The Pros:Folds into a portable shape. Folding is easy with the telescopic system.
The Cons:Wheels are extremely small. Can't hold much weight. Works properly only on extremely smooth terrain.
The A-Bike is a folding bike that weighs only 12 pounds and folds into a compact 26" x 11" x 6" (67cm x 30cm x 16cm). The bike rides like a normal bicycle, although the lightweight nature of the bike sometimes takes some getting used to.

Invented by Sir Clive Sinclair "..the idea is that if you have a bicycle which is seriously lighter and more compact than anything existing at the moment, it will change the way in which people see bikes.” "...it's so well built it could have been machined in a Formula One factory .. this is the ipod of bicycles, a fantastic feat of engineering.."
