MINI says lime colour gives folding bike 'stylish visibility'
The bicycle is no longer merely a means of transportation, it is also a lifestyle and fashion accessory. With its newest folding bike, MINI is bringing a splash of colour to the streets and showcasing a fascinating and versatile new way to
get around. The eye-catching lime punch-coloured folding bike guarantees confidently stylish visibility on the roads. It is perfectly suited for commuters, as during rush hour they can fold it up and carry it on trains and buses free of charge. With this new bike, for the first time MINI is also offering an array of compatible practical accessories such as lights, a bike bag and an iPhone case.
The MINI Folding Bike Lime truly rocks the streets, asserting its presence with a progressive mix of style, design and innovation.
Its outfit: A neon yellow frame that catches everyone’s eye as the bike cruises around the city. Its strengths: Only 11 kg in weight, an eight-speed shift system, 20-inch wheels and a clever folding mechanism.
In a matter of seconds, users can fold the bike’s crossbar and handlebar stem. They can also fold down the pedals and lower the seat, allowing this two-wheeled MINI to be effortlessly stowed away.
A further impressive feature is the air pump integrated into the saddle – always ready to use and yet well-hidden to avoid theft. Along with this comes a compact saddlebag for carrying tools, and the Teflon-coated, dirt-repellent chain is especially easy-care.
The bike also comes equipped with a comfortable gel saddle, a bell, and a pre-installed Klickfix adapter on the front wheel – all as standard. This allows easy attachment of accessories such as the bike bag.
The new MINI Folding Bike Bag provides a safe place for everything riders need while travelling through the city. The smart bag is easily secured to the Klickfix adapter, and thanks to a handy carrying strap, riders can also take the bag with them when they reach their destination.
The environmentally friendly MINI Bike Lights ensure good night-time vision. Integrated solar cells not only help protect our climate, but also provide battery power for up to seven hours.
With the MINI Bike iPhone Case, smartphones are always protected from rain and dirt. It fits to the handlebars and its touchscreen surface allows riders to use their phones whenever they need to. The protective cover is ideal for iPhone 4 and 4S models; an adapter is available for 3G and 3GS versions.
