Folding cars (as seen in The Jetsons) might still be a long way off but the folding bicycle has arrived. To wit: the Strida LT Folding Bike. Don’t let it’s unusual design throw you—this bike rides as well as a non-folding one once you get use to the weight distribution, which is more oriented to the rear wheel.
The folding Strida LT weighs only 19 pounds so it’s easy to carry up stairs or unto public transportation. It’s easy to fold up in a few seconds too (see the video after the jump). What’s not so easy is going up steep hills—the Strida LT has only one gear. $600 with free 2-day Amazon Prime shipping

Be forewarned: When measuring twice, we advise using a real tape. Because the ring is adjustable, you don’t need know your favored tailor’s measurements. $60
