The Less is More Folding Bike

Designed for the urban commuter, the Occam Cycle makes it possible to transition between public transportation and riding in a cinch! Similar to a full-size bicycle, the riding style is familiar for most (minus the seat) so users will adapt quickly. More so, users will find that it’s even easier to fold and unfold than other folding bikes. Why? Because there’s simply less TO fold! Less folds also means less weight, less time, and less stress.
