Crowdsourcing Mornings: Tuck Bike – The Big Bike For Small Spaces

This is Crowdsourcing Mornings! This post takes place every weekday morning and highlights one crowdsourcing project I liked from Kickstarter, Indiegogo, or other crowdsourcing websites.

Please read our crowdsourcing guidelines at:  https://geekalabama.com/media-kit-pr/geek-alabama-crowdsourcing-guidelines

A full size bike that is fun to ride on your commute or a weekend trip. Flexibly folds to fit under your desk or in your hallway. Easy to take on the subway or the trunk of your car. Our expected retail price is $1,995, but on Kickstarter you can get $200 or $300 (Early-Bird) off.

When you’re on it, it’s a smooth riding regular ‘ol bicycle – what you’re used to and what you expect, but when you fold it…..oh boyyy, ain’t she the cutest?! If you’re going to fold your bike, this is the best way to do it. We’re talking about a full size bike with a conventional frame, that folds down to the size of a suitcase.

Ever unlocked your bike and realized you have a flat? We got you covered – our Gecko Rubber foam tires are impossible to puncture. They’re a revelation, offering the same grip and handling you’re used to. Richard Adams at Gecko Rubber has custom blended these slicks to suit your hectic urban lifestyle.

You can get a small wheeled folding bike that’ll fold smaller than a Tuck Bike, but we know you’ll have more fun riding on full size wheels. A medium size Tuck Bike folds up smaller than a small wheeled Tern Verge P10 (22” wheels), but if you want the absolute smallest package, you should get a small wheeled folder. We’d love you to be out on a Tuck Bike, but most of all we want you out riding.

As of November 17th, this project has raised $90,000 of their $158,000 goal. This project has 13 days left to raise the $158,000 or it will not be funded. For a pledge of $1,695, you will get one Tuck Bike.  To learn more and to pledge money, go to: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/tuckbike/tuck-bike-the-folding-bike-with-folding-wheels?
