This reminds me of the iconic Raleigh “Chopper” from the 70s.

I had a chopper, probably the first one in the US (Dad’s shop was a huge Raleigh reseller).

It was an awful bike.

I would like to watch someone with that saddle sprint to the line with a final bike throw. That would be entertaining.
The Mk II will have a button on the bars (wireless of course) that allows it for fold back for that key moment. (For now, this is so much faster, the fold back/bike throw feature isn't needed.).

Ignore "it." Frankly, I am surprised the comment didn't get deleted. Guess there is still time.

In one of my old magazines there's an article or an ad about a company that devised a cable attachment between the rider's waist and the stem or head tube. Supposedly allowed a rider to really pedal with some force against the cable tension. Nothing dangerous about attaching yourself to a bike with a cable.

Attention Bikeforums users!

Bob and Fabby have lost their sense of humor.
If found, please return it to the service desk.
Thank you.

Left button is for fold-down, right button is for vibrate.
