[The BYB] has one of the most ingenious folding mechanisms on the market though. Once folded, the bike can be stored upright (there are thankfully no protruding bits to snag on other people’s clothing) and pushed along using the handlebars and a combination of its main wheels and two tiny swivelling castor wheels. For a 20-inch wheel folding bike, it’s certainly one of the smallest and neatest packages this rider’s ever encountered.
Tern has done a great job with this interpretation of the city folder, proving to have within its R&D not only a valid team of engineers, but also a group of enthusiasts who live and breathe the bike and understand the needs of those who ride the city streets every day.
Two joints make the Tern BYB unique and quite compact. Its full features also make it attractive for year-round commuters. Highly recommended.
But just because this folding bike is super compact doesn’t mean it’s only fit for people on the shorter side. In fact, anyone between 4’10” and 6’5″ can use this bike.

I flew last night (...) and I brought my bike. I'm gonna show you how I easily and quickly fly with my bike—and most importantly, how I just check this as luggage because I don't get charged a bike fee.

In fact, when folded up, the BYB is actually one of the smallest 20″ bikes on the market, which means it’s much easier to manoeuvre on crowded trains and buses or when zigzagging through busy tube stations.
The ingenious folding mechanism, in which the frame is bent in two places, ensures a good pack size. Also suitable for small day trips.
If you have a folding bike like this, you don't need a big bike.
