In 1992 in a small garage in Eugene, Oregon, by the brothers Alan Scholz and Hands Scholz. BIKE FRIDAYWas born.

The name of Bike Friday is a character that appears in "Robinson Crusoe's Drifting Story" and is inspired by his beloved best friend and talented buddy "Man FRIDAY".

It is meant to mean "the best partner that adventurers 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 BIKE FRIDAY brand isJourney. And most of their bicycles fold and store in a suitcase, anywhere in the world,JourneyIt's a bike you can take with you to do it.

 

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 traveling around the world.

A bike frame manufactured using chromoly tubing absorbs vibrations from the road surface when driving (as many of you know), so it is less likely to get tired even on long-distance rides. It will be to enjoy the ride until the end of the, but in addition, because this bike friday is a folding bike, it is very important to repeatedly fold it, so it is also chrome moly in terms of having as high durability as possible. The material is the most suitable, and at worst, even if it breaks on the road, Kuromoly can even repair it by welding locally.

And since Bike Friday is still in operation from the beginning, even now, at our own factory in Eugene, Oregon, the process of producing frames from welding to painting is done by craftsmen one by one.

 

 

Also, most models are made after receiving an order based on the numbers measured for the rider's physique. So bike fridayHandmade custom folding frameIt is. Also, it is an important point to tell everyone that even if it breaks, you can get the repair warranty as much as possible. 

Can be used forever, It may be just going backwards from the lifestyle that has become too common in recent years, always repurchasing, but the most valuable value we Circles believes is,Can be used forever, I think it is summarized in these words.

 

The folding function of the frame is basically a one-touch quick lever.

Depending on the model, the steering wheel and saddle that are a hindrance during normal cycling are detachable or foldable.
The folding part that many folding bikes break first.
It is clear from this part that Bike Friday is premised on making bicycles that love bicycles and can be used for a long time.
Where is the force applied when riding a bicycle?
What kind of folding method is easy to use?
What materials are more durable and reasonably priced to use?
The answer won't come out overnight.
However, I think that the result of pursuing that was the reason why it became a bicycle loved in the world.
You can't talk about just the folding part.

Long Friday cargo bike made by Bike Friday. This model is the only one without a folding mechanism, but the handle, frame and carrier can all be removed and disassembled with a hex wrench, and can be stored in a cardboard box in no time.

Like the pocket companion, this model is also equipped with a frame adjustment mechanism, so that people from 120 cm to 200 cm in height can share one unit. With this one, my father could send my child to a kindergarten in the morning and my mother could pick me up in the evening.

Maximum loading capacity 90kg. With this one, you can do anything from business to moving. It would be nice to see such a scene here in Nagoya.

Last but not least, the pocket companion weighs 91kg, and the other three models are sturdy enough to handle people up to 100kg. For those who want to travel the world by bicycle, it would be sad to have weight restrictions.

 

 

A bicycle for people traveling the world. It's exciting just to imagine that you can ride your car in a land you don't know. 

From traveling companions to everyday companions.

We believe Bike Friday will be the best partner in your rich bike life.
