Azub introduces "optional" hinge technology for 2015

 

To fold, or not to fold... this is the question.

No doubt, the ability to fold your trike or bike, particularly, the recumbent ones, can be a tremendous asset in getting it from point A to point B. On the other hand, who wants to fold something if they don't have to, much less spend the extra money on folding mechanisms and including extra weight that may be unnecessary.

Azub is introducing a new system for 2015 that defaults to being "take-apart". Separately [pun intended], a hinge can be bolted into the middle of the take-apart joint converting it the take-apart trike into a folding trike.
