The brechin is a millennial reinvention of the collapsible bicycle; high-performance, full-size and race ready, the brechin is light-weight with regular size wheels and standard parts. Faster, stronger and better looking than its parents, the brechin collapses quickly with a simple manoeuvre, the stowed seat becoming the carrying handle. Portable by hand or suitcase, the brechin optimizes mobility for global citizens, serious and casual cyclists and erases barriers to cycling for those living in tight spaces. The scalable design is adaptable to many frame materials and bicycle types.
