The smallest folding bike in the world. When I saw it, I knew I had to have it. With 8-inch wheels and only weighing 14 lbs, it’s known as the smallest folding bike in the world.

Originally, the smallest folding bike in the world known as the A-bike, was released by Clive Sinclair in the United Kingdom on July 12, 2006.

When the A-bike first became available, it had tiny 6-inch wheels. I wish I could have purchased this smaller folding bicycle because I find it very intriguing.

Unfortunately, I was only able to get my hands on the 8-inch A-bike, which is still known as the smallest folding bike in the world.

Just look at that fold!

At the time I was taking buses to Downtown Rochester, New York to get to work. The A-bike was much lighter and more compact than my Brompton folding bike. This made it much easier to fit it on the bus when it was packed.

Once I arrived downtown, I was able to carry the A-bike out of the Transit center to a nearby location.

Within seconds, I’d have the A-bike unfolded and ready to ride my short, 5 minute trip to work.

At work, storing the tiny A-bike was no problem. I was able to fold it up and put it in the corner, out of the way.

After work, I’d unfold the A-bike and ride it down to the Sibley Building where I’d wait for over 40 minutes before heading to the Transit Center.

All important features while waiting for the bus at the Transit Center. Look how easy it was to put on the side while I was sitting at the bench.

Bringing it into stores and restaurants was a breeze also. It easily fit under the table while we were eating lunch.
