A folding bicycle / foldable bicycle/ folding bike is a bicycle designed to fold into a compact form, facilitating transport and storage. When folded, the bikes can be more easily carried into buildings, on public transportation (facilitating mixed-mode commuting and bicycle commuting), and more easily stored in compact living quarters or aboard a car, boat or plane.
Folding mechanisms vary, with each offering a distinct combination of folding speed, folding ease, compactness, ride, weight, durability, and price. Distinguished by the complexities of their folding mechanism, more demanding structural requirements, a greater number of parts, and more specialized market appeal, folding bikes may be more expensive than comparable non-folding models. Apart from cost considerations, the choice of model is a matter of resolving the various practical requirements: a quick, easy fold, a compact folded size or a faster but less compact model.
