The new bike has been unveiled at the Consumer Electronics Show. The MetroBike appears to be based on their BURKE 20 ‘Suitcase Bike’. This uses a Brompton style flip fold rear and folding frame. It is designed to have the front wheel removed to achieve it’s final fold so technically is a collapsible bike rather than a pure folding bike.
