Tern Bicycles is based in Taipei, Taiwan and distributed worldwide.  Tern defines themselves as an urban transportation company - one that has focused primarily on folding bikes since it's inception in 2011.  

Tern's focus on innovation, durability, affordability and utility is hard to miss when riding their bikes.  Tern's deep connections in Taiwan bicycle manufacturing enable Tern to bring to market unique component designs that make their bikes supremely adjustable.  Also worth mentioning is the sophisticated geometry showcased on Tern's small wheel bikes - the truth is they ride better than you might think - in fact it can be hard to believe that you're on a folding bike when you hop on board.

COMING IN 2018
 

Looking ahead to 2018, Tern will expand their line beyond traditional folding bikes, and continue along the path they started years back in partnership with Xtracycle around the development of useful urban bikes that straddle the categories of electric, folding, cargo and utility. The Tern GSD is a full featured cargo bike compact enough to fit anywhere.

Tern folding bikes are built on lightweight hydroformed aluminum frames with robust hinges tested and guaranteed to last.

We stock two models of folding bikes suitable for individual commuting - bikes which ride great but can be compacted to fit in your automobile, on BART or Muni, or on the Golden Gate ferry.

The Link D8 is an affordable full-featured folder with a uniquely adjustable stem allowing one size of frame to fit a wide range of riders. 

The Verge P10 is a performance-oriented folder with a wide gear range, lightweight and strong wheels aimed at fast acceleration and lightweight for easy handling when folded. 

The Cargo Node from Tern and Xtracycle represents the ultimate transportation solution for people who want to live car-free and are tight on storage space. This unique bike is  a game changer for people who live in cities. Thanks to 350 lb of carrying capacity, it's a full-sized cargo bike, yet it folds down to 1/3rd its total volume in only ten seconds. It’s designed to fit in an elevator, so it’s easy to store in an apartment, and it’s light enough to carry onto public transit.  Check out pictures of the Cargo Node here.
