Debuting stateside at this year's Interbike Expo, Jango's Flik folding bike adds a travel-friendly model to Topeak's line of clever multi-activity cycles.

After months of enjoyment riding Jango's full suspension bike, we're excited to see they've applied the same design principles to the Flik, while adding to it a patented VertiLink system (vertical six-bar linkage), ensuring a simple, two-second fold-up.

As part of Jango's plug-and-bike series—a modular system built to easily integrate 35 optional accessories—the Flik also accommodates a wide range of uses, but thanks to its compact frame and effortless folding capability the Flik goes wherever you go, whether to another country or just in the back of a car. Taking into account the commuter making their way through crowded urban environments, the Flik also can be "shuttled" on its wheels in its folded position.

Featuring an adjustable rear suspension, a 50-tooth front chain ring and 11-28 rear cassettes, changing the gear ratio is a cinch allowing the Flik to handle urban pavement, as well as off-road settings. The Flik comes in four different models, with either their disc or V brakes and eight or nine speeds.
