TECHNOLOGY

N-Fold™ Technology – THE FASTER FOLD

With N-Fold Technology, Tern bikes fold small and fast—in three easy steps. It’s simple enough for anybody to master. And with the handlepost folded to the outside of the package, Tern bikes can also roll when folded for easy transport.

OCL™ Frame Joint – ADVANCED FOLDING TECHNOLOGY

The key to any folding bicycle is the frame, and specifically, the folding joint at the heart of the frame. Done well, it locks the two halves of the frame together without any hint of movement or sound. It should be easy to operate and work flawlessly year after year. The OCL Joint does all of these things and is a new reference in folding frame technology.

DoubleTruss™ Technology – STIFFER BY DESIGN

The rear half of Tern frames use a patented 3D structure we call DoubleTruss to build in extra stiffness. It helps resist torsional forces so our bikes flex less. That means increased stiffness and much better power transfer from the pedals to the rear wheel. The proof’s in the ride.

T-Tuned™ Geometry – FULL-SIZED RIDE, COMPACT FOLD

At Tern, we endeavor to build fast-folding bikes that ride like full-sized bikes. Our T-Tuned geometry is the culmination of our commitment. We’ve tweaked the wheelbase, rake, and seat-tube angle of our design to deliver the most confident and stable ride of any bike in our lineup. Ride one and try it. Take your hands off the handlebars if you’re feeling bold.

Quadric™ Dropouts – THE USER-CENTERED DROPOUT

Dropouts are often overlooked, but a good dropout goes a long way. Our Quadric dropout is built taller, so your disc brakes are protected inside the frame. The design makes the eyelets for mudguards, racks, and our clip system more user-friendly and accessible than ever before. We even included a mount for a sturdy rear kickstand.

Tarsus™ Fork – HYDROFORM MEETS FUNCTION

Utilizing a single hydroformed tube mated to a precision-machined steerer, the Tarsus delivers superior strength in a shape that matches the sophisticated lines of the Verge and Eclipse frames.

Hydroformed Tubing: The process of hydroforming aligns the grain structure and strengthens the aluminum material. It also minimizes welding in the most highly stressed area of the fork.

Internal Wire Routing: If you decide to equip your Tarsus with a dynamo hub, it’s ready for internal cable routing, keeping the profile of your bike clean.

Physis™ 3D Handlepost – THE NEW BENCHMARK

Five patented technologies and unique manufacturing technology add up to the strongest, stiffest folding handlepost available. The Physis uses a special manufacturing process called 3D forging, which forms the post from a single piece of aluminum, eliminating all welds.

Syntace VRO Stem – FIND YOUR FIT

Your bike should adapt to fit you―not the other way around. This adjustable stem allows you to position your handlebars further, for a more stretched and aggressive riding position, or up higher for increased comfort.

Porter+™ Saddle – CARRY YOUR BIKE COMFORTABLY

We reengineered the underside of the age-old bike saddle into a comfortable grip and shoulder pad. Up top, the dual-density construction and gel cushioning will keep you comfortable on the road, and the impeccably finished vacuum construction makes the saddle waterproof and easy-to-clean. Down below, the GripPad™ on the underside of the saddle lets you grip the saddle nose with comfortable confidence when your rolling your folded bike.

Pedal Holder – QUICK-RELEASE PEDAL STORAGE

Our bikes come loaded with lots of wow features, but one of our enduring favorites is the quick-release pedal. Once removed, it gives you a smaller and more maneuverable folded package. This under-saddle pedal holder lets you keep your free-floating pedal conveniently at hand.

Strut™ Seatpost – SETBACK AND SLIM

Made from special 2104 aluminum, the Strut is our lightest seatpost ever. It’s designed with an 8 mm offset to deliver a spacious cockpit and an aerodynamic riding position. It’s capped with a dual-bolt rail clamp for precise saddle adjustment.

Shimano Hydraulic Disc Brakes – ALL-WEATHER STOPPING POWER

Shimano hydraulic disc brakes deliver powerful stopping power in all weather conditions with the touch of a finger.

Kinetix Pro Disc Wheels – SPEED ALERT

Paired-spoke design allows us to build a strong wheel with fewer spokes—resulting in a lightweight, aerodynamic wheel for fast riding.

Schwalbe Durano Tires – FOR MILE EATERS

We love these sporty tires for their impressive high mileage. They’ll let you log mile, after mile, after mile. A double layer of nylon fabric protects you against flats, and the dual-compound rubber gives you excellent grip—even on wet winter roads—while keeping rolling resistance in check.

Shimano Shadow Derailleur – STREAMLINED SHIFTING

Originally developed for mountain bikes—for extra durability and to avoid catching on trail debris—the Shadow derailleur is streamlined and incredibly resilient, which comes in handy when you need to transport your folded bike. Whether your bike is bagged on the subway or riding in the trunk of your car, everything is neatly tucked away.

1x (“One-By”) Drivetrain – SIMPLIFIED VERSATILITY

There’s a revolution in drivetrains across the industry. Thanks to the recent introduction of hyper-wide cassettes from SRAM and Shimano, it’s possible to achieve massive gear ranges with only one chainring up front. That makes 1x an ideal configuration for folding bikes, because it reduces maintenance, weight, and complexity. Enjoy all the range of a 20-speed drivetrain, with none of the complications.

Cargo Kickstand – READY TO HAUL

The Cargo Kickstand is built strong and will keep your fully loaded Tern bike upright. It uses Pletscher’s rear chainstay mount design.

Magnetix™ 2.0 – KEEP IT TOGETHER

The Magnetix 2.0 uses powerful magnets to keep your bike folded for situations like carrying your bike up and down stairs. With a pull force 10-15 Kgf, the Magnetix 2.0 will keep your bike folded even when being jostled and moved about.

Luggage Socket™ – CARRY MORE STUFF

Fix the Tern Luggage Truss to the Luggage Socket and you can plug in your choice of front luggage: rack, basket, or bag. If it’s KlickFix compatible, it’ll work.

Tyrell FX

Fast, Light and Compact

Tyrell FX – Lightweight & high performance folding bike.

Slant Design

A long-awaited folding bike · The FX was born from Tyrell’s DNA, which pioneered new development for mini-velos.

The frame design has a common Tyrell trademark which is the SLANT Design where two narrow inclined pipes are sandwiched to the top tube. At the first glance, it does not look like a folding bike and yet it folds like an origami transforming itself into a compact elegant folding bike. We at Tyrell are not only working towards creating an impressive and attractive silhouette based on the design, but a unique framework for minivelos as we research ways to increase the strength and rigidness of the entire frame, the improvement of the frame geometry by lowering the center of gravity of the top tube and optimizing the dimensions of the wheel base. No doubt this elements can be solved by adopting the Slant Design, we still need to strive to better the folding mechanism and keep on delivering to you new innovation that can shape the future of folding bikes and minivelos. But for now the FX is the fusion between a great foldable bike with performance and lightness.

Detailed Welding Finishing

Main frame is lightweight #7005 Aluminium double butted tubing. Need a truly committed craftsman to ensure smooth welding and detailing.

Frame Unlike Any Other Folding Bike

The key point in the development was to make a strong and beautiful folding bike without having moving parts in the main frame. We would like to create a design that from a glance is known to be a Tyrell by incorporating the Slant Design to the FX.

Innovative Folding Fork

The folding fork adopts a backward folding method. This smart design integrates the foldable function of the fork but at the same time securing the strength of it as well. Distinctive use of aluminium and carbon materials on the fork create a light weight foldable fork that is only 900 g.

Unique Original Parts

We at Tyrell express our commitment to every small detail in the design of our bike such as the Aluminium end cap of the grip which is printed with our original logo.

Powder Coating Paint

Powder coating by Kadowaki Coating (Yokohama City, Kanagawa Prefecture) creates a beautiful and durable paint finish.

BB Pivot・Crankset

To ensure the rigidity around the BB, we designed a pivot with built-in bearing under the BB for the rear wheel to turn 180 ° around this axis when folded. And in ensuring the chain does not detach during folding, we attached a 56T CNC chain guard.”

Speed, Performance and Stability

Due to the low center of gravity and long wheel base, the FX thoroughly eliminates that wobbly ride feeling that is common among small wheel bicycles. On the FX it is possible to have speed, performance and stability in one bike that no other lightweight 20 inch folding bike can offer.

Folding Function

The FSX folds in just tens seconds with no tools while ensuring great performance. Folded size is 79 cm in height, 87 cm in length and a width of 35 cm. Surprisingly compact for a bike that has a wheelbase of 1,075 mm.

In spite of impressive folding features and very lightweight, the CARRYME bikes provide great handling and feel like larger-wheeled bikes to ride.
Supreme portability
Mobility like never before.
CARRYME was designed to become a part of your life and go everywhere with you. It will get you to your destination as quickly—or as leisurely—as you want, and is also a great way of bringing exercise into your life. When you are not riding, it folds up into a neat package easily and quickly. Even the pedals are collapsible, allowing the folded CARRYME to take up very little space whether being carried in a vehicle or stored in the home or office.
Thoughtfully designed
to fit into your life.
CARRYME is the result of many years of design refinement, and this shows in every aspect of its unique construction. For example, the unique sliding front head tube clamp that provides a stiff and sturdy joining system and allows the frame to be folded up to an amazingly small size. Or the small built-in wheels that allow CARRYME to be pushed along the ground. Both the seat post and headtube are telescopic and will extend to accommodate riders of all heights.

REVIEW: Montague Navigator Foldable Commuter Bike

The Navigator by Montague Bikes, a brand from Massachusetts, USA, is a full size bike with 700c wheel size that also folds! Its simply can be described as a bicycles that sacrifice nothing in performance and still provide the folding benefit for space saving convenience.

R0003214 (1200x795)

Took this city navigator out and about in Port Dickson, Negeri Sembilan. Its a very comfortable ride with a relaxing reach to the handlebar, great for commuting or weekend riding at the park. You can’t go wrong with 27 speeds and 700c wheels for a commuter bike. Sometimes I forgot this bike was a folder!

R0003215 (1200x795)

The Navigator also make a perfect bike for your bike-to-work plan, where you can ride from your house to nearest train station, because they allowing a folded bike on a train. But not at peak hours, so plan your trip wisely.

R0003216 (1200x795)

The Navigator frame is designed around a patented folding system. This design eliminates the need to break the frame in order to fold the bike. Not only does this make folding easier but it makes this bike the strongest folding bike on the market.

R0003217 (1200x795)

Its come with SR Suntour crankset with 48T, 38T and 28T chainrings. I used 38T all the time because of less hills in Port Dickson and I’m just chilling.

R0003218 (1200x795)

The Shimano Sora 9 Speed is just perfect for the purpose of this bike.

R0003221 (1200x795)

The first thing I want to upgrade is the saddle. Not because its not comfy enough but we human has different sit bones width.

R0003222 (1200x795)

The Octagon offers all the benefits of an angle adjustable stem without shortening “reach” when raised. This unique design allows for handlebar height to be changed while preserving the way the bike handles and rides. Also, with the octagonal shape of the post, steering remains engaged while raising or lowering the stem.

R0003223 (1200x795)

My other issue with the bike is you have to take out the front wheel in order to fold it. However, it come with CLIX™ quick release for the front and rear wheels, making it easier to do.

R0003228 (1200x795)

Formula hub, Alloy sealed with CLIX™ quick release.

R0003230 (1200x795)

For your information, I didn’t ride on these rocks. Impossible!

R0003235 (1200x795)

The patented folding system is unique to Montague bikes and makes them the strongest folding bikes on the market. Put them inside Perodua Kelisa (backseat) and Honda City (boot) and it fits perfectly!

R0003249 (1200x795)

My favorite part of the bike is the clever integration of CLIX™ technology, allows for the Navigator to be folded in under 20 seconds without the use of tools. A flip of the CLIX quick release lever on the top tube and the bike folds to a compact size. If you forget to re-tighten the quick release after unfolding, a secondary lock prevents the frame from folding. Genius!

R0003253 (1200x795)

R0003245 (1200x795)

The Bikefun’s Crank Buddy with Kickstand, a brand from Taiwan, made a stand for Montague Bikes when folding, in order to protect the bike, especially the chainring. Its function like a camera tripod, so the bike can stand on it own when folded.

R0003242 (1200x795)R0003233 (1200x795)

Now, if you want a practical, fast, space saving, car/train-friendly commuter bike, full size bike, this is the one for you. The Navigator actually come with a rear rack and fenders. I also highly recommend you to buy the Crank Buddy as well. Thanks to VUBC for giving me credence to review their products. If you’re wondering, I’m 5’9″ (175cm) and riding size 19″ (available in 17″, 19″ and 21″).
