PR Newswire, Kirkland, WA, November 15, 2016
If storing or transporting your bicycle is a challenge, this might be your lucky week.
Web retailer Flatbike.net is giving away a full-size, 24-speed commuter bike that is a blast to ride, yet folds in seconds to fit in your dorm room, apartment, or car trunk.

This CHANGE DF 702 commuter bike could be yours with the right photo about your relationship with a bike—the places you try to fit it, and the tradeoffs you must make in space and security to have your bike ready whenever you need it.

When your bike folds in half, all these challenges go away.”
