IF Mode folding bike is ultra-portable, for a price

Having a bike in the city is great, except for one problem: Where do you keep the damned thing when you aren't riding it? The solution for many is a folding bike, but the ridiculously small wheels and goofy configuration of most folding bikes give some riders pause.

But the IF Mode folding bike looks like a real, legit bike. It has full-sized wheels and a chain hidden in a tube. It folds in a single action, making it super-easy to make compact for storage in a closet or hallway.

The problem? It's $2,500, which is a pretty insane price for a bike meant for casual city riding. Cut that price down to something more reasonable and you've got a winner.
