About this project
FUBi folding system
The basic idea with FUBi fixie folding principle is to keep as much of the traditional diamond frame as possible. This allows you to transform your existing full-size bike into a folding bike. This without sacrificing riding performance and looks.
FUBi fixie is a full-size folding bike with the same looks, price and riding features as a "normal" fixie/bike, yet can be folded with ease for convenient transport and storage. It's a has full-sized 700C wheels.
Transform your bike into a folding bike
FUBi fixie is designed with minimal changes to the existing bicycle design. FUBi uses only standard bicycle parts except for the frame. This allows you to use your own custom parts or any available standard parts.
Experience the best riding performance among folding bikes. It has the same performance as a normal fixie.
Easy to fold
FUBi is easy to fold without having to use any tools. It can be folded and unfolded in 5-10 seconds. When used as a fixed-gear it rolls on the front wheel when folded. If used as a single gear (with freewheel) it rolls on both wheels.
Patented frame technology
FUBI fixie has the FUBI patented frame technology that utilizes the triangular principle in order to have a very rigid and light frame. The frame is built by using the 4130 chrome molybdenum steel tubing.
Secure locking system
The folding system allows you to lock FUBi in a more secure way. Lock it around a pillar with front wheels, frame and pillar all locked together with a U-lock.
Usually folding bikes are expensive. FUBi fixie offers a competitive pricing that can compete with normal bikes, fixed-gear bikes and single-gear bikes.
Single-speed, fixed-gear or 3 speed hub
The bikes have a front and rear brake and a flip-flop hub. The bike can be used as a single-speed or fixed-gear bike by turning the rear wheel around. There is also a 3 speed freewheel hub option.
Where it fits
FUBi fixie fits folded in elevators, metro, bus and in most cars.
Meet the founders
Fubicom was founded in 2006 by Ulf Laxström. He has developed FUBi compact folding and other bicycle related innovations. He has over 20 years of experience in design and construction. He has over 10 years of experience in building folding bikes
FUBi fixie is a design of Zakarias Laxström. He has been on the FUBi team from its beginning. Zakarias has over six years of experience in different folding bike concepts and is also a professional welder and automation expert.
The basic idea with FUBi fixie was to make minimal changes to the existing diamond frame design. The FUBi fixie combines the best features of a normal fixie and the best FUBi technology.This was made by using the existing patented FUBi technology and then adding some new design aspects in order to get a compact folding frame.
FUBi fixie will be made in scandinavia to ensure the right production quality. The bikes will be manufactured by our manufacturing partner and our team specialized in both manufacturing and bicycles.
Fubi will be made of quality parts.

Risks and challenges
Similar to many crowdfunding projects, we face several risks and challenges in undertaking this next step in the evolution of FUBi. The primary risks for us include:
We have already completed the prototyping and the test phase of the FUBi fixie to our full satisfaction. In the design and construction, we still have some small issues we want to solve in order that the bike functions better. However, we are very confident that we will be able to find the best solutions to solve these issues.
Many crowdfunding campaigns can encounter problems when taking their prototypes to production. Smooth execution is significant to overcome such risks.
The bikes and the frames will be made by the producers we know and trust. We are therefore confident to be able to produce the bikes on time. However, unexpected things can happen sometimes. If there is a delay, it is for a good reason and most likely because we only ship when the bikes fulfill our requirements.
THE FUBi TEAM
Finding the right people is a challenge for any endeavor. Success in this major step of the evolution of FUBi requires a team of talented, passionate and motivated designers, engineers and entrepreneurs.
Fubicom is an existing business run by a small team of real people with a passion and ambition for new, different and innovative solutions in the field of bicycles. Because of the major undertaking, this means for us that we are already actively looking for new members to join us.
