FUBi Fixie – Transform Your Bike Into A Folding Bike

What makes the FUBi Fixie folding system one of a kind is the fact that it can transform a full-sized bike into a folding bike without compromising on performance. This bike has the same looks, pricing and riding features similar to a “normal” fixie/bike, yet it can be folded with ease for convenient transport and storage. The bike also comes with full-sized 700C wheels. FUBi has been designed with minimal changes to the existing bicycle design and uses standard bicycle parts except for the frame. Because of this you’ll be able to use your own custom parts or any standard parts on this bike and enjoy riding on it every day. Folding and unfolding FUBi takes a matter of 5-10 seconds. When used as a fixed-gear it rolls on the front wheel when folded. If used as a single gear (with freewheel) it rolls on both wheels. A perfect bike for those who find it difficult to store their bikes in the office or at home because of less space.

And what are those test pieces??? Just a bunch of tubes?? I am getting my money back, this is fucking rediculous!
Koen Schuit
Why do they keep forgetting Kickstarter backers! Just a matter of copy paste!! I think we have been more than patient, keep us in the loop!!!
s Sample parts has arrived for the front part of the frame. A more in-depth update will come in few days when we have the tested the parts.,w_695/v1528971530/h1amvkcucjfczz1saubw.jpg

Any updates, or have you guys packed it in?
Tom Page-Phillips
It is my first comment. I hope your project will go through. Of course, the backers and I are disappointed that it is dragging along. To be honest, I am pretty amazed at your determined to get the project through after a long time because time is money. I really thought I lose my investment but I am really grateful that you kept in touch with us, and you were trying to sort out with these hopeless manufacturers. I got your back. I know it is my risk. It is my first invest in Kickstarter But I am a keen biker and I love your concept. So I support you. Just hang on there. Thumbs up.
Simon Arnold
Even if you managed to produce the bikes. What you think will happen? Do you believe that after so many broken promises, so few updates and a flagrant lack of respect towards your backers they'll jump on it and think: "Those guys are reliable, we feel totally safe, our bikes would never break at a critical moment causing severe injuries"? Sometimes projects fail, but the real question when it happen is: What should we do next? At this point, I think the only viable option would be to give a prorated refund. To continue would be to show a misplaced ego and/or greed.
This comment section has really got out of controll. You could always write us on
instead you want spread negativity here. We understand you are not happy.
But it was all your responsibility to read true what investing in a ks means. Sometimes things fails, most startup fails. You can't deal with that well then its your own fault. Also most ks campaigns get delayed. Seems like many people just want to put us in a bad light.
Simon Arnold
You said in your original campaign: “We now have well functioning prototypes. The only thing that is now missing is your support, so that we can get into production.” You got financed, but two years later you haven’t started the production. At this point, this look like this project is either a scam or a huge failure. In case of a failure, Kickstarter dictate that you should post an update that explains what work has been done and how funds were used. You should demonstrate that you’ve used funds appropriately and made every reasonable effort to complete the project as promised and finally offer to return any remaining funds to backers who have not received their reward (in proportion to the amounts pledged), or else explain how those funds will be used to complete the project in some alternate form.
Update We are still waiting for pictures form our supplier. We write you an other update in the end of the month. /Fubiteam
Alec Kay
well, it been awhile and I already moved on from this project. got my self an ebike. I would like to get a refund.
Simon Arnold
Happy 2 years funding anniversary (26 marsh 2016).
Eric Castelo
We have all been very patient. In 2 years we have seen no more than excuses. Now, in the last update, they say that if they had done things as originally planned, they have made 1,000s of bykes. Really?. This is a bad joke.
Koen Schuit
I kinda stopped believing in this project. What will we hear in 1.5 months, if anything. If I don't see a couple of photos or a video I am going to try and get my money back. 2 years, and not even a prototype...
See Below (I do not understand why creators ignore Kickstarter backers)
Scott lawson
So, coming up here soon will be 2yrs since you said the bikes would be delivered. When I pledged that was the date you said you would deliver the bikes. In the 2 yrs since then what exactly have you done besides constantly make changes, change manufactures and take trips to China? You go months with out up dating even though people constantly ask for them, I don't think that's too much to ask. Do you even have anything to show us in two years? I will start working on getting my money back at the end of the month if substantial progress is not shown it some kind of an update soon.
Simon Arnold
~4 weeks ago you said: « Update with more details coming in ~2 weeks »
Koen Schuit
This is really getting rediculous. Is there any progress at all? Otherwise I might have to ask for a refund since it has been two years without anything to show for. Keep us (or me at least) up to date. I have said this multiple times but so far you have been ignoring the backers totally with the exception of some updates once every 2 to 3 months. I really want to know what's going on with my money as it's starting to look like a scam.
Esteban Silva
waiting for that update that was supposed to come around a week ago... I presume you didn't make the late January deadline? What's going on?
Koen Schuit
Update please!
Update with more details coming in ~2 weeks /Fubi team
@koen & Esteban Please read the latest update
Koen Schuit
Guys, it has almost been two years since this project was funded and there has been little to no progress as far as I can tell. I really want to know when we can expect the bikes, so please provide us with some sort of estimate.
Esteban Silva
Is there a timeline? What is the status? Do you need any help? What can we as backers do to expedite the process?
Hey Guys! Thank you Koen Schuit for explaning the problem, it is correct! New update today
Simon Arnold
Hi guys,
We’re now officially a year late on the schedule. Is there a new timeline?
Koen Schuit
@Regula; Since FuBi doesn't seem to check their comment I will try to answer it. You probably pledged for a frame, wheels and a 3-speed hub, right? The frame has a possibility to install a carbon belt which needs a different gear system. So as long as you don't want the belt drive you get the normal s-speed hub and you don;t need to pay extra. If you DO want the belt drive you need to pay an additional amount because this system is more expensive. This amount is the difference between the normal hub, gear and chain and the belt drive (3-speed hub, front gear and belt). If you want to know the difference you should contact them through email. Hope this makes sense.
I've already paid for a 3 speed hub- gear. Why should I pay for an other one?
Have I missed something? Greetings, Regula
Hey Alban, Yes we have deiced to have the 1" stem instead, since in our opinion its much better. You can disassemble the stem easy which you can not on the 1 1/8 without the fork falling of. Also you can adjust stem height which is important. Please write us on if you have questions
Alban Chantepie
@Fubi, Hi I checked the historic of comments but I didn't see any remarks regading my questions.
I would like to know why you have used a fork and a stem on standard 1'', and not a frame with a 1''1/8 headset?
Do you have done this choice for a technical reason? or other? On your last post #8, pic 6 (on the road) you have ''folded'' the handlbar.
If I undestand well the pic, you have removed the stem, that'st it?
Yon don't use a original or specific headset? Thx. Hang in there, you are at the end.
Mark Baumohl
I don't have a preference for rims but I would much rather have calliper brakes.
Keep up the good work guys.
takashi sakakkibara
We are welcoming that production is progressing.
For brake and rim we request caliper brake and silver rim
I hope the bicycle will arrive early.
@David Only two different frame colors white and black. We will go with disc brake and black rims since that seems to be what most want. We just wanted a last opinion.
David Mischel
I appreciate that the process of getting this bike made without compromising the quality has proved to be a greater challenge than anticipated. Hang in there! I will be happy with a bike you are proud to produce. I have a question about colors. In your latest post you show two colors of wheels and two brake configurations. Will these be choices? Will there be any choices for frame colors?
Mikko Zitting
There's an update. Bikes seem to be coming! Great news!
As far as I know, creators usually log in Kickstarter only when they post updates. Their last login was July 4th. These facts may mean they have no interests in checking backers' comments on a regular basis. Simply awful.
Koen Schuit
Fubi: This is getting way out of control. Either you start informing us about the progress or I will have to try and get a refund from my CC company. We are almost a year from original delivery with no real progress, so please provide us with more updates and reinsure us that this project will come to an end somewhere this year. And if you have problems with the manufacturer then I would like to know as well, I hate to be left in the dark. Typing some words will only take half an hour of your time and it keeps us all happy!
William Pedler
Another trip with air travel where I could have used that FUBI. What's the chance to license a manufacturer here in States and get these damn things built? This process is almost as painful as watching grass grow or paint dry. WTF?
Koen Schuit
By the time this bike gets out I will be to old to ride.... Any updates Fubi?
Check update
Any updates?
Did you have any progress?
William Pedler
Any news or updates?
Koen Schuit
@Rohan Singh: I have no problems with delays and unforeseen problems as long as the company is transparent about it. And I also think it is safe to say we might have to wait until the end of this year. Hopefully Fubi will tell us otherwise next week in their update!
Rohan Singh
Hey backers, I've run a similar campaign myself to manufacture a batch of bicycles, and I had to deal with delays as well. That said, I refunded backers whenever they asked for it, which I'm disappointed that Fubi is not doing. I followed a similar model of manufacturing overseas. Based on my experience, given that a manufacturer has yet to be secured and there's no product run yet, I wouldn't expect to have a bike until very late 2017 or early 2018. It generally takes about 3 months to manufacture and another 2-3 months to ship these things, especially since bikes are such bulky goods. Hope that helps align everyone's expectations. My needs have changed at this point and I've asked for a refund, but Fubi has declined. Hoping they change their minds. -Rohan
@Koen Update coming next week
Koen Schuit
It has been two weeks since you arrived in China... any news?
Alec Kay
Hey where can I update my shipping address, it has changed.
James Nakamura
Negativity? Yeah please tell me how you guys don't deserve it.
You refuse to update your process to stay transparent, furthermore, you refuse to refund those you lose trust in you.
