MINI_Dahon_Folding_Bicycle

Automotive branded bicycles are nothing new.  BMW, Range Rover, Audi, VW, and McLaren are now joined by MINI.

The design team over at BMW saw the need to work up a MINI branded folding bike to accent the purchase of your MINI Cooper.  The bike appears to be manufactured by Dahon, as the bike is specced with a Dahon Slipstream aluminum fork.  It does sport the MINI logo in silver, has a matte black finish, and a Union Jack motif on the seat stays.  Driving the rear wheel is a teflon coated Taya chain, the likes of which we have on test right now.

Even if you don’t own a MINI, the MINI branded folder will be available as a stand alone purchase for $499 Euro in August 2011 from select MINI dealers, or online at www.MINI.de/shop

Mini did a campaign in the past with Montague folding bikes. I kind of liked those better since they use a larger wheel and look/feel like a normal bike. I’ve ridden small wheel folders before and its like a clown bike. Montague is still making bikes, you can see them at http://www.montaguebikes.com/
