The cheapest Birdy by far, but still retaining the famous German build quality and ease of use. The price is achieved by using an older frame design, which is tried and tested but easier to manufacture.
The bike has 8 speed derailleur gearing with a twist shifter, tough Swalbe marathon racer tyres, kickstand and full mudguards. It's a great basic Birdy and really what we have been waiting for - great for commuting and leisure rides.
Full suspension monocoque
The Birdy from the German company Riese und Müller is a full suspension folding bike with superior road performance and some off road potential. The Birdy's fold allows it to retain a jointless main frame that is solid and stable. The use of an aluminium monocoque frame makes it very, very light. The use of a swingarm both front and rear allows full suspension and folding. All this adds up to a bike that's light, fast and fun to ride.
Although the Birdy enjoys all the generic advantages of any folder - namely compact portability, it is best suited to those who seek a faster ride and to cover longer distances than the Brompton. It does not have quite such an easy or compact fold as the Brompton, but it is lighter for lugging around!
The Birdy is a configurable cycle - like the Brompton. Simply choose your colour, transmission option and accessories. The accessories can also be added on at a later date. All Birdys are ready to take mudguards and a kickstand, both of which we strongly recommend, though we are happy to accessorise to your own specification.
