Citizen Bike’s GOTHAM7, pictured in Graphite, also comes in Orange and Pearl.

Life is better with options. Modes of transportation that can expand and contract to fit the situation are not only ideal but often necessary to efficient modern life. Citizen Bike has tapped into this niche with a catalog of folding bikes that are lightweight, fast and easily stored. The GOTHAM7 is part of their Gotham series and is identified as a sleek, speedy commuter that can handle any urban oasis or concrete jungle.

It weighs just 28lbs sans the 2lbs rack and can handle a rider up to 220lbs. The built in Shimano 7-speed drivetrain can navigate various landscapes from metropolitan-area to parts slightly off the beaten path. Aside from being a looker, the bike also folds and unfolds quickly without the use of a tool. Even the pedals fold in to help it be ultra slim and ready for transport.
