No. 22’s Innovative Coupling System Solves The Problem Of Bulky Bike Travel

Sep 9, 2020

If you’ve ever tried to travel with a bicycle, you know how much of a hassle it can be. Not only do you have to worry about breaking it down to fit into a full-sized bike bag, but airfare, storage, and tool compatibility can also add unwarranted complexity. To remedy this, No. 22 has revealed an interesting new coupling system that allows you to split your bike in two, minimizing issues when it comes to packability, and amplifying compactness.

On the surface, No. 22’s new Travel Bike Coupling System sounds simple. The truth is, it’s much more complicated than any of the traditional couplers that we’ve seen within the cycling industry, to date. While a variety of modern coupling systems can be bulky, cumbersome, and complex, the outfit’s innovative design takes advantage of bespoke, low-profile frame couplers, a “Brake Break” hydraulic hose solution (for internal routing), and simplified hex-bolt joinery, allowing the bike to be broken down in a matter of seconds. Inside, internally-routed cabling can be coupled at the frame’s break-point, meaning that you’ll be able to remove the rear brake from the front of the bike with ease. While the Travel Coupling System is expected to adorn the company’s primary cycle line at a later date, it’s currently on No. 22’s already-established titanium models for an additional $1,250.
