Picnica Bridgestone Onetouch folding / collapsible bike / bicycle in red

In his review, the Picnica folding mechanism was described as a “case of the frame collapsing backwards on itself, with the handlebars and seat post falling to the top of the rear wheel. To this end, the main part of the frame is a quadrilateral with a pivot at each corner, and a rear triangle made collapsible by hinged seat stays. It’s those seat stays that hold everything in place. In the riding position they’re straight and rigid, as on any bike. The upper part of each seat stay is locked in a retaining channel by spring pressure; squeeze the upper seat stays inwards and they pop out of their channels, and the hinge ‘unlocks’. The upper and lower seat stays then fold over as the main frame folds – the whole bike collapses under its own weight.”  -Brian Conolly “BootieBike: Bridgestone Picnica belt drive – 1980s folding bicycle” (via Wikipedia)
