In a small garage in Eugene, Oregon, in 1992 by the Alan Schortz and Hands Schortz brothers. BIKE FRIDAYWas born.
Bike Friday is the character that appears in The Life and Strange Surrogate, a lovable best friend and a talented companion, inspired by Man FRIDAY. It has the meaning of "the best partner that adventurers traveling around the world must have." Such Bike Friday celebrated its 25th anniversary this year.
As the head badge shows, the biggest feature of the bicycle created by the brand BIKE FRIDAY isJourney.. 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.
Bike frames manufactured using chromoly tubing (as many of you know) absorb the vibrations from the road surface moderately when driving, so you will not get tired 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 and use it, 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 locally.
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.
