Enjoy a Full-Size Ride

For those of us who like biking for the sake of biking, carrying a small, collapsible two-wheeler just won't do. Enter the Swissbike, a full-size mountain bike that folds to a fairly small size. Unfolded and set up, it's a solid, full-on bike capable of taking on the roughest island roads. Our resident bike experts here at Cruising World have pronounced all the gear, from the shifters to the disk brakes, to be top of the line. The frame is made of aircraft aluminum and coated with a five-layer anti-corrosion finish.
