Folding Recumbent Bike? Cool!

By Avonelle Lovhaug on 9/13/2022

I’m not really in the market for another bike, but I came across the Grasshopper fx today, which is a folding recumbent. One of the challenges of recumbents is how bulky they can be, making them hard to transport. (I can get my Burley Hepcat inside my 2008 Honda Element, but it is unclear how many more years I’ll be driving that car.) It also appears that the Grasshopper fx has same size wheels, which is a nice feature because it simplifies the tubes you need to carry. With my Hepcat, I need to carry two different tube sizes. And they even have an electric assist option, if I wanted to turn it until an e-bike. I didn’t even think that was an option for recumbents.
