Folding handlebars solve two bike-riding problems

Sometimes living with a bicycle is just too inconvenient. If you want to lean it against the wall in a hallway, for instance, it sticks out too much. And unless you're interested in a radical folding bike design, some tight spaces aren’t quite big enough to fit your chosen conveyance, because the handlebars stick out a bit too much. There must be a design concept that can come to the rescue here.

Indeed there is — designer Joe Wentworth has the answer: These folding handlebars can replace your existing set, making your gas-saving bike-riding campaign just a little bit easier. Quickly collapse them for compact storage, and lock them in that position so no one will be tempted to steal your wheels.
