    Qoroz Freedom Won

    A beautiful Titanium minibike, similar to Tyrell bikes, but with couplers to separate. It fits into a suitcase small enough for airline legal hand luggage.

    Stunning... I think there has been a post about these bikes... a blog or something.

    There are some. E.g. this thread about Qoroz, which seems to be quite new on the market. And dedicated to only the finest bikes. Here is a promotion video.
    But couldn't find anything more detailled about the Freedom Won.
    Here is another pic:

    Annyway, the suitcase might be a Rimowa Topas Jumbo Trolley 70 which measures 50x74x26 cm outside. Not quite in the hand luggage dimensions but still impressive.

    Looks like I need to get that Yike deposit back and spend it on a Qoroz!

    Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, I guess. Considering it`s a coupled frame, I don`t see why they left it with that mile high seatpost and unsupported stem. Maybe I just misunderstand the intended purpose. I`ll certainly grant that the current design will let it break down to almost microscopic dimentions for travel. Looks light, too.

    Oh, that is straight forward: the max fork+stem length is limited to 74cm to fit into the suitcase. See their suitcase pic in the linked PDF above. However, you have to take the fork out of the frame :-(

    Further reading on the website explains their use of long seatpost and stem is to introduce some 'flex' to combat the harshness of small stiff wheels .

    Hmmm. Bike Friday says that about the long seatposts too, but I always figured they were just trying to promote the silver lining in a downside. Maybe not, I guess.
