Rodriguez 6-Pack Micro Folder Bicycle - from $4,999

"If you want a micro-travel bike that rides as well as your full-sized touring bike, there's really only one way to go"
Steve C. 6-Pack owner and micro-travel bike enthusiast.

The Rodriguez 6-pack uses 6 S&S couplings to make this bike fit into a suitcase as small as 20" X 20", or just about any standard sized suitcase in minutes. The packing ability, ease of break down and re-assembly were all crucial to this bike's design. Every braze-on, component, and unique feature on the bike were chosen for a quick and easy pack/un-pack job for the smallest suitcase possible.

Made in USA This bike is not a classic 'folding' bike as people have come to know as 'whizzy' for an everyday bike. Classic 'folding' bikes are more of a 'second' bike that one only rides when they have to use a folding bike. The 6-Pack has been designed to ride just as solid as any touring or road bike. Packing ability was important, but it was also crucial for our 6-Pack customers that the bike perform well enough to be their everyday bike. Because we build this bike with a front triangle as well as a rear triangle, the bike rides like a full sized touring bike.

About the 6-pack Standard

The Rodriguez 6-pack Basic is one of the most unique, innovative, U.S. made, custom travel bikes available. Initially introduced in 1997 as a new product, this bike took a while to catch on....a long while. It wasn't until 2009 that we sold our first 6-pack. Now it's a big seller here at R+E cycles. Like a lot of our bikes, this one was just way ahead of it's time.

We realize that our Rodriguez 6-pack is not inexpensive. But, if you want a real bike that has this much versatility, it's worth it, and can actually save you money in the long run. Don't ask us though, ask Steve. Check out some the 6-packs in our photo gallery

About the 6-pack Rohloff Version

The Rodriguez 6-pack Rohloff is our most popular 6-pack. With a Rohloff rear hub, all of the gearing is contained inside the rear hub. It is extremely easy to maintain, and rarely needs adjusting. It also packs very easily because you don't have to deal with derailleurs when dis-assembling the bike for packing.

The customer quoted in the first paragraph has owned several micro-folding bikes from various manufacturers, as well as a couple of full-sized touring bikes. Until he rode his new 6-Pack, he'd never ridden a micro-folder that he thought rode as well as his full-sized bikes. He travels several times per year, and rides thousands of miles on his bikes. He loves his new Rodriguez 6-Pack. You can read his story here.

He has since sold his full sized touring bike, and purchased a second 6-Pack
