Inhabitat loves all folding bikes [2], but we can’t ignore that some of the designs out there are slightly maladroit – that’s why were are psyched that Wallpaper Magazine [3] has come out with “The International”. Just like James Bond, this bike is hot, streamlined, and… folds down [4] to fit nicely into a stylish leather bag [5]. The limited edition bike was designed by Japanese makers Kinfold [6] and Portland-based spray painters Coat [7]. The one thing we don’t love about this design is the price tag. The International costs £2,450, and for the bag – designed by Nivaldo de Lima – you can tack on another £2,500.
