Key Product Features / Benefits
Because of its unique in-line folding design, NexiBike folds into an easy to carry portfolio shape.
This configuration not only makes NexiBike easier to carry but it also makes it easier to store – behind a door or under a bed or desk, thereby safe from theft.
In the Boston area, the MBTA permits passengers to carry folding bicycles aboard public transportation at all times when folded.

Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
The delivery dates for NexiBike rewards are the best estimates of when NexiBikes will be available for shipment. As with any project of this size and complexity, delivery dates may be adjusted a few weeks one way or the other. Operational uncertainties may impact when the NexiBike Reward is delivered but they do not constitute a threat to its actually being produced and shipped in compliance with the Backer’s expectations.
Although the waiting time is long, if one weighs this temporary inconvenience against the benefit of receiving a NexiBike (at below dealer's price) with a 90 day Satisfaction Guarantee and a warrantee on the frame for the rest of the original owner's life, it is clear that the generous nature of this Kickstarter offer is a reflection of the confidence and pride that the NexGen Bicycle team has in NexiBike.
We want to eliminate the nagging problem of protruding cables on the folded bike that can interfere with not only the person transporting the bike but those around them as well. Having the coaster brake and kick-shift makes that possible.
