Sleek and lightweight, the Boston is designed to give a fast, responsive ride and fold with the simple flick of a lever. The Boston’s folding integrated technology system (F.I.T.TM) is based around a quick release controlled seat post pivot. This folding design uses no hinges or other ‘cuts’ in frame tubing, making the Boston the strongest folding bike frame available. Folding the Boston requires no tools and can be done in less than 20 seconds for easy storage. Utilization of the patented CLIX Wheel Release System allows for quick removal of the front wheel when folding the bike.
“The idea for the Boston was conceived when we examined how people use their bikes in an urban environment,” says product manager Jonathan Vandenberg. “We found that while the concept of a low maintenance, 700c, single speed was ideal for city riding, it clashed with the severe lack of space that most cities suffer. Let's face it; it’s often hard to find secure outdoor parking for your bike, and who realistically has room in their studio apartment to accommodate a bike? The Boston's standard full-size geometry allows you to ride comfortably all day long, and when you reach your destination, you can fold the bike down to take it inside. It also looks great and can be easily customized as it uses all standard components."
The Boston is powered by a single-speed drivetrain featuring a flip-flop hub. This special hub allows riders to change between a fixed-gear and free-wheel setup with little effort. The 42 X 16t drivetrain is geared perfectly for city riding.
By incorporating the patented F.I.T. system into a frame built around a single-speed drivetrain, the Boston merges the simplicity of a single-speed design with the convenience of a folding bike, allowing the rider total flexibility in combining their bike ride with alternative transportation methods such as trains, cars, or taxis. The Boston delivers unprecedented performance and portability in three frame sizes: 17”, 19” & 21”. Standard components make this bike easy to customize at the bike shop.
