Flat Folding Thinbike for Small Spaces

Small bicycle-filled entryways rejoice! There is now a full sized urban bicycle that folds flat to nearly disappear and stay out of the way — and it's quite stylish too.

The simple concept for Thinbike is the result of a collaboration between TreeHugger founder Graham Hill and German bicycle company Schindelhauer (where Thinbike can be special ordered).

How does it work? With a simple twist the handlebar swivels to reduce the bike's width from 22" to only 8". To get even slimmer, you can flip the pedals down to prevent bruising your shins.
