New upgrades & the future
Juhani

Hey everyone,

Thank you for the last feedback you gave in the comments and emails. We have now got an good idea of what you want.

The Future

The company that has developed the bike has gotten into problems due to Covid and other reasons. We have decided to not continue on the same path. We are currently looking for partner who can manufacture and distribute the bike. For anyone who is interested, you can read more about it here

In the meantime we will change direction and develop the frame into a high end carbon fiber folding frame or Titanium, focusing on low volume production. We plan to develop and produce the frame entirely here in Finland. The steel version frame was made to about 80% in Finland but some key components was outsourced over seas.

Additional new updates to the bike

In the last update you can read about the improvements for the 2021 model. Now we have even more developments, with a carbon fiber frame we have some more free hands to change designs.

This are the further improvements we plan on implementing:

1. Carbon fiber frame.
2. Frame made for 1 1/8″ steering tube.
3. The frame compatible with disc brake for both 26″ and 28″ wheels.
4. Eccentric bottom bracket with vertical dropouts (will work for hubs with derailleurs as well)
5. We plan to develop the frame so it can easily be converted to an E-bike with integrated battery and control unit.
6. Improved diagonal stay and quick release solution as shown area in picture bellow. (This solution we can’t disclose details on yet)

7. With few modifications we have now been able to get the folding size smaller (86x75x31cm). We have a stay to protect the seat tube, and a holder for the seat post. This smaller folding size is possible with: removable pedals, shorter fork and folding handle bar (folding handlebar not shown yet)

In this video it shows how it folds more compact than before.

Here are some other folding bikes sizes to compare with:

Fubi 28” wheels (86x75x31cm)
Tern verge p10 20” wheels    (80x75x46cm)
Bike friday 20” wheels  (95x61x25cm)
IF mode 26” wheels (95x66x27cm)
Birdy 18” wheels (80x62x34cm)<

Feel free to comment with feedback.

    This is such an unfortunate news.
    Is there any chance to buy a Fubi bike any soon?

    As a feedback – I think that it would become even more compact hen folded id handlebars can be folded as well.

    It’s good to hear the updates from you guys.
    Nice work! I can’t wait to see the carbon fiber frames.
    But, as a customer, I’m waiting for so long, hoping you can resume the online ordering.
    It’s seems not going to happen recently right?
    Is there any chance to just buy the frame?
    really like your bikes, hoping I can get one…

    Is there a new frame sold only for the frame?

    Oh no! Terrible news. Unfortunately, “high end” sounds a lot like “incredibly expensive”. Is there at least already an approximate date from when there will be new bikes available?
