For every way to ride, there s a bicycle to fit the need. An homage to the beauty of the bike,Cyclepedia showcases the innovations and legacies of bicycle design over the past century. Join longtime bike enthusiast and avid collector Michael Embacher for a tour of 100 bicycles, from the finest racing bikes and high-tech hybrids to the bizarrely specific (such as a bike designed to cycle on ice). Captivating photographs, detailed component lists, and anecdotal information illuminate the details that make each bicycle unique. Also including a foreword by cyclist and designer Paul Smith,Cyclepedia is the ultimate coffee-table book for devotees of the two-wheeled life.

This folding bicycle comes with its own trailer. This bicycle can fold into its own trailer, which just happens to look like a suitcase. :) You can take this suitcase on public transit without problems.
