Downtube Folding Bikes – Reduced Prices
IXFS Sold Out - New stock available soon
Contact us for details - sam@velochocolate.co.uk

The Downtube IXFS is the ideal personal transport for modern life. Flexible enough to accommodate riders large or small, you can share it with the missus, or lend it to your shorter or taller friends. It rides like a big bike, but it has a small bike attitude, folding small enough to fit under your desk, in your cupboard, in the back of your car, or even on the underground, but the 9 well chosen gears mean you won’t be embarrassed when you encounter “normal” bikes out on the road. The full suspension soaks up the bumps of our marvellous city streets to perfection, and with the addition of a quick-release rack on the seatpost, you can take your lunchbox with you wherever you go.

If you need cycling to be part of your lifestyle, whether it’s because of personal convictions (either ecological, or maybe even criminal, for those with driving bans!), to avoid the congestion charge, or to reduce your petrol bills, the Downtube IXFS gives you fantastic flexibility. If you want the health benefits of cycle commuting, but live too far from the office, the IXFS will fold up so that it’s allowed on even the busiest trains, and once you get to the other end, it’s the work of moments to unfold and hit the road.
