Mercedes-Benz Folding Bike

Mercedes-Benz UK has just taken delivery of its most compact, sustainable and lightweight urban runabout yet – the Mercedes-Benz Folding Bike. Available now from all Mercedes-Benz Retailers in “Silver Arrows” silver or cool icy white, it’s an intelligent way to get about town when you choose not to drive.

Featuring eight-speed sequential ‘clutchless’ transmission, powerful disc brakes all-round and fully independent front and rear suspension, the new Folding Bike is as well-specified as its passenger car siblings.

The Folding Bike is perfect for the urban commuter, or the non-driver who has always hankered after something bearing the three-pointed star. And unlike any other Mercedes-Benz, it can easily be parked on a crowded train, in a studio flat, domestic hallway or car boot.

The bike’s unique, patented folding mechanism is easy to operate and takes just a few seconds, and there are two different folded positions ensuring maximum convenience. The Shuttle position folds the seat post onto the frame, allowing the bike to be pushed and steered – ideal for easy manoeuvring when negotiating crowded train stations.

When in the completely folded down position, the Mercedes-Benz Folding Bike requires very little storage space, measuring just 80x80x35 cm. These dimensions make the bike ideal for storing in a car, especially for those who want to park out of town and cycle in, avoiding congestion charges. In fact, taking London’s £8 daily congestion charge into account, the Folding Bike effectively pays for itself in under six months – and extra fitness is an added complimentary bonus.

The folding aluminium frame has a suspension travel of 40 mm at the front and rear, which is adjustable for ride comfort. The bike also features: An adjustable gel saddle; ergonomic hand grips; tough Continental tyres with reflective side walls; a slick ‘semi-auto’ Shimano sequential-shift eight-speed derailleur for perfect pedalling cadence; folding pedals (reducing the folded width, and protecting shins); and two powerful disc brakes to ensure a high level of safety. Added to that is a side stand, sprung-flick bell, a protective fabric cover bag – and a luggage rack for everyday practicality. Security is provided by a standard-fit push bolt, which locks the front disc (and therefore wheel) in place.

The Mercedes-Benz Folding Bike is available from all Mercedes-Benz Retailers, is available in Silver or White and costs £1,099.

Other bikes available in the new 2009 Mercedes-Benz Bike Collection include the Mountainbike All Mountain Limited 2009, the Limited Racing Bike 2009, the Fitnessbike 2009 and the Trekkingbike 2009 along with a range of clothing specifically tailored for cycling.
