    Smooth, effortless, graceful is the dictionary definition of Glide. The Glide looks and rides like a classically elegant full size bike but it folds slightly larger than 20" wheel bikes. For every person who buys a 20" wheel folding bike, there are probably 10 more that decide not to because they feel they look funny on a bike with small wheels. The Glide gives you the best of both worlds: folding convenience and a traditional looking bike. With a 24” wheel size, low maintenance gear hub, rack, SKS fenders, dynamo hub, Hella front light and the new Biologic PostPump, the Glide gives you the freedom to take your full sized bike anywhere.

    The glide looks like a great bike. I wonder how it performs on trails. Ive been looking at comfort bikes for a while. My husband just got himself a trek navigator which he loves, Pitty it doesn't fold. The nearest to this style of bike I could find with a more upright position was one of the German Pacy models. The glide does not have front suspension though.
