Berliner Fahrradschau, also known as the international cycling lifestyle show, has been highlighting the world of commuting by bike for 6 years now. To celebrate the 6th edition of the show starting on March 20, 2015, Berliner Fahrradschau has teamed up with Schindelhauer Bikes to create the Limited Edition BFS ThinBike.
Already a Red Dot Design and iF Design award winner, the ThinBike gets some custom BFS upgrades to create an even more striking bicycle. Perfect for city living, the ThinBike is designed to ride well but also take up less room in your house or apartment. Limited to just 25 pieces, there’s probably a thin chance of getting one for yourself…
The ThinBike gets its name from what else? The ability to get thin for storage. Utilizing a quick release stem that allows you to rotate the handlebars 90 degrees, the bike’s frontal profile gets much thinner for storage. Folding pedals add to the shrinking width.
More importantly though, Schindelhauer wanted to create a bike that rode more like a full size bike but was easy to store like a folding bike. Built with 24″ wheels and long wheel base, the bike supposedly keeps an excellent ride quality while keeping things tidy.
Among the added BFS custom touches, the Limited Edition ThinBike also includes a wall mount to
show off store your prized possession.
In addition to the SRAM Automatix 2 speed rear hub and Gates Carbon Belt Drive, the BFS ThinBike includes a Supernova E3 Pure Dynamo light with Shutter Precision SP-8 dynamo hub and a LightSkin seat post with a built in rear light for easy illumination. Wheel spray is taken care of through custom designed fenders, and the front of the bike is set up to carry your bags with their Voroop front rack.
The standard 2 speed ThinBike without the accessories sells for just under $1500, which makes the Limited Edition BFS ThinBike’s retail price of $1850 (1500 Euro) seem like a bargain. Head over to bfsthinbike.com or email firstname.lastname@example.org to order.
