The IF Mode Folding Bicycle is one of the only collapsible models that looks like it might be worth riding for long distances. It folds in seconds too, which is very cool. The only downside is the rather exotic price of $2579.00. Which makes it just slightly more expensive than the new Tata Nano car. Strange thing, life. Video. [Via]
IF Mode avoids oily chains, complex tube with hidden dirt traps and the clutter of traditional bicycle features. It can be used by city commuters who do not want to change their appearance into ‘bicycle warriors’ and may use public transport or their car for some of the journey. IF Mode looks at home folded up on a smart subway train or in an office, just like a sleek mp3 player or other well designed accessory in your life. It also performs on the street like any lightweight well balanced full size bike.
