    NEW REWARD!! Loopwheels bike PLUS The Stack!

    A Loopwheels folding bike - with 20" loopwheels, hub brakes and 3 speed gears - plus the Loopwheels Keyring, Little Loopy Monster and the hand-printed 100% organic cotton Loopwheels T-shirt, personal thank you on our website AND a signed Loopwheels postcard.

    We build these bikes by taking a single-speed folding bike, replacing the front forks, changing the wheels for our loopwheels with integral suspension, brakes and gears and with our own loopwheels logo. These are completely unique and each one is converted by us by hand. Each wheel is individually made and coded. After the campaign, we'll take details of the colour of loops you'd like on your wheels in the backer survey. For more info, have a look on the loopwheels.com website. This is the Original Loopwheels bike - as a special, limited offer for Kickstarter 2015. We will mark these bikes in some way as a limited edition - I haven't quite decided how yet!!
