Most folding bikes are not as compact as this bike when folded, the Contortionist folds completely into the space of the wheels 26in circumference, and leaves a nice little pull handle for you to drag the bike around. The bike didnīt go into production, but, elements of innovation within the design are now being developed into production bikes with an undisclosed manufacturer. Watch the video
