This bespoke creation, built for Ming Watches founder Ming Thein, is crafted from high-grade titanium, making its frame exceptionally strong, durable, and lightweight, not to mention ideal for frequent travel. The magic lies in its detachable parts, which can be disassembled and placed into a suitcase, a dream come true for space-conscious cyclists.

Going beyond mere portability, Firefly’s design team adjusted the gearing and geometry to mimic the feel of a standard road bike, ensuring a comfortable and familiar riding experience. The two-wheeler’s unique details include custom-made titanium pump bodies, a solid aluminum head, and a brass check valve. Additionally, the long seatpost, reinforced with carbon fiber, maintains lightweight construction without sacrificing comfort.

 

Although this is a one-off design, wanderlusters can request a similar customization.
