Looks like my 20" wheeled travel bike is starting to take shape. The idea is to have a travel bike that packs up into a small case that is capable of being ridden on city streets as well as gravel roads, fire roads and light single track. The bike is being built by Jeremy at Gallus Cycles . This isn't an ordinary everyday build for Jeremy so it has taken a fair amount of collaboration and head scratching to get it to the point that you see in the photos. The frame is loosely based on the old Burro Bikes . Stay tuned as it comes together.
