There are many commuter bike models in the market. However, one particular brand easily comes out on top: Pacific Cycles CarryMe folding bike. It is a lightweight, foldable power-horse, designed to meet all your needs as a city commuter.
No matter where you go, every city has its own unique challenges. Some common inconveniences include peak-hour traffic, inefficient public transport networks and crowds.
All this waiting inevitably eats into our downtime, but a commuter bike helps us take back time we would have otherwise wasted. Time we’d rather spend bonding with friends over a drink or having dinner with our families.
Reasons why we swear by the CarryMe commuter bike:
With a weight of just 8.4 kg as the world’s lightest travel bike, CarryMe is suitable for all ages to ride and handle with ease. From kids to the elderly, casual riders or daily commuters to professional cyclists, CarryMe is built for everyone to enjoy.
2) Ultra compact folding & easy storage
Not all commuter bikes are created equal. When it comes to storing your bike away at the end of a day’s ride, no other bike models can compare to the CarryMe.
A fully folded CarryMe bike, standing upright, takes up very little space. So long as you have 30cm x 20cm of available floor space, you’d have enough room in your life for the CarryMe.
This makes it perfect for city living where there is limited apartment space.
The CarryMe is also designed with a unique sliding front head tube, giving it a sturdy joining system. Folding and unfolding the commuter bike is a simple task that everyone can learn in a few minutes.
3) Easy to move around
As the main bike frame is equipped with two roller wheels, you can choose to maneuver it by pushing the bike beside you in a fully upright position or push it at a tilted angle with both hands in front of you.
4) An everyday bike
Because of its compact form factor and lightweight built, you can literally go anywhere without feeling like the CarryMe bike is slowing you down. You can bring it onto the train or bus, wheel it into the mall as you window shop or have a cup of coffee.
Keep it safe in a museum locker as you wander through the exhibits. Heck, you can even park it beside your office desk in between uses.
Say goodbye to the days where you have to fumble around with bicycle chains and padlocks to keep your non-foldable commuter bike safe from thieves. Plus, you won’t have to worry about a lack of space to park your bike anymore.
5) Seamlessly transforms into a travel bike
Want to bring your trusty CarryMe commuter bike with you on an overseas trip? You can do so without breaking a sweat. Specially designed for travel, the CarryMe comes with its own dedicated trailer & luggage kit.
Simply pack your bike into the luggage and it is now a travel suitcase you can check in at the airport. After reaching your destination, you can immediately unpack the commuter bike from the luggage, put your personal belongings into the travel kit and start exploring the new city on your CarryMe.
6) Simple yet efficient
With its efficient single-speed gear set up, you won’t need to worry about the technical aspect of changing gears. You are the one to determine your speed: ride as leisurely or as fast as you want on the commuter bike.
On a 70 to 90 cadence, you can easily reach a speed of 19 to 21 km/h on your Carry Me.
7) Simple maintenance
Cleaning the CarryMe is a breeze. You won’t have to deal with rusting as its frame is made out of 7005 Aluminium alloy. The commuter bike's single-speed gearing also means you can cut down on the time spent cleaning sprockets and gears.
8) Special customised colours
Your commuter bike doesn’t have to be coated in the typical black or navy blue. Why not let your personality shine through our vibrant bike colours?
We handpicked nine custom-made colours from the Pantone colour palette to produce our CarryMe bikes. There are no other bike establishments in the world that’s selling these exclusive CarryMe commuter bike colours.

9) Option to gear up with accessories
Your journey with your commuter bike doesn’t end after you buy and ride it. Jazz up your Carry Me with a wide variety of accessories:
Made out of sturdy ABS/TPU material with a carbon fiber finish, the hard case is designed for the adventurous traveller. The case is equipped with a standard TSA lock and boast 360 degree rotating wheels to maximise the convenience of bringing the commuter bike overseas.
Consisting of one pull rod (with rubber suspension), two 8” trailer wheels and two quick release axles, transform the travel hard case into a trailer you can drag behind you as you ride the bike. When detached, these accessories can be conveniently packed in the luggage.
