You might love your bike and biking to work, but you probably could do without the hassle of having to carry your bike down the stairs to your subway stop or push it past passengers when you climb on the train. The One Shot Bicycle designed by Valentina Vecchia and Marilena Alberga addresses these problems with a fixed-belt foldable bike that transforms into a single column perfect for carrying on public transportation.

Compact and light, the One Shot Bicycle features an intuitive design with a contemporary look. Unlike other folding bikes, several features of the One Shot allow it to close into a single vertical column.  For example, a telescoping axle permits the two halves of the bike frame to move into a nearly parallel position that is extremely compact, while folding pedals ensure that your bike won’t accidentally catch on your fellow passengers. Created with young commuters in mind, the One Shot Bicycle will make your trip to the office one of the best parts of your work day!
