YouTuber Makes a Folding Bike and Now So Can You
The video shows steps by step instructions to making a folding bike that are surprisingly easy to follow.
They say that necessity is the mother of invention and such is the case for Laura Kampf, a YouTuber that found herself unable to travel on a train in Germany due to having her bike with her. Kampf did some further research and discovered that you can take a bike with you on a train if it is folded.
She then decided to make her own folding bike. How did this YouTuber make such a bike from a regular bike? With a lot of creativity and some heavy duty tools.
First, she used chain saws to cut the bike in two. Then, using parts of a bike chain, she connected two rectangular pieces of metals.
She used those two pieces to connect the two parts of the bike together in a way that they can actually fold. How ingenious! She even installed some locks to keep the bike perfectly in place when it is put on bike mode.
