The TYRELL FX is an everyday bike that is still sporty when you want to power on. With its 20″wheels, the FX delivers a satisfying riding experience, and folds fast. This is the folding mini-velo that has revolutionised the world of folding bicycles
The supervision of Tyrell founder, M.Hirose in the production of the bicycle extends into the details. Here, you can see and feel Hirose’s touch – the ergonomic handgrips and saddle that are embossed with Tyrell’s name, and the custom-painted bicycle frame that Hirose insists is done by renowned Kadowaki Coating only.
The iconic X-slant design of the bike frame is not only for looks, its geometry results in a bicycle frame that uses less material but is still very stiff.
The Tyrell FX, with an aluminium frame and carbon fork that comes stock, weighs in at 8.9kg. 406-sized wheels (also built in-house by Tyrell) combine to give a low-slung frame that makes it very easy to get on and off the bike.
This is great for all sized riders, and also gets you closer to the road, which would appeal to riders looking for a more sporty riding position. Calliper brakes by Tektro and Shimano Tiagra parts for the remaining groupset ensures you are getting a beautiful bicycle with quality parts.
Beyond the looks and performance, the Tyrell FX is a mini-velo that folds. This is a plus factor for owners who have limited storage space or simply needs to transport the bike from time to time.
On the road, the Tyrell FX exudes coolness wherever it goes. This is a bike that can in one moment carry mini-velo chic and blend in with a trendy and fashionable crowd, for that leisurely ride in the city; and in the next moment, transform into a road bike and fly down the country roads for that adrenaline fix – thanks to a 10-speed Shimano Tiagra gearset.
For such a light and speedy bicycle, there are some points to take note of. The handling is feather-light.
In conclusion, the Tyrell FX is a stiff, light bicycle that is great for the trendy commuter or the fitness rider.
