In 1992 in a small garage in Eugene, Oregon, by the Alan Scholz and Hands Scholz brothers. BIKE FRIDAYWas born.
Bike Friday is the character that appears in "Robinson Crusoe Drifting", inspired by his beloved best friend and talented companion, "Man FRIDAY." It has the meaning of "the best partner that adventurers traveling around the world must have." This year, Bike Friday is celebrating its 25th anniversary.
As the head badge shows, the biggest feature of the bicycle produced by the brand BIKE FRIDAY istrip.. And most of the bikes they produce are bikes that can be folded and stowed in a suitcase and taken with you anywhere in the world.
All the materials used for the Bike Friday frameChromoly steel。
The reason why this chromoly material is actively adopted is that Bike Friday is a bicycle that travels the world.
A bike frame manufactured using chromoly tubing (as many of you know) absorbs vibrations from the road surface moderately when driving, so it is less tiring even on long distance rides, and at the end You will enjoy the ride until the end of the race, but in addition, due to the nature of this bike Friday, it is very important to fold it repeatedly, so it is also chromoly in the sense that it has as high durability as possible. The material is the most suitable, and in the worst case, even if it breaks on the road, chromoly can be cured by welding on site.
And from the beginning of Bike Friday to the present, the entire process of frame production from welding to painting is carried out by craftsmen one by one at our own factory in Eugene, Oregon, USA.
