Abstract [en]

This master thesis project is about easier commuting in a more eco-friendly way thus a new foldable pedelec - pedal electric cycle was created. The idea is that the commuters are able to fold their bicycle to a convenient size and store it under the desk in the office, in a trunk of a car, or even brought on a bus if used as a connecting transport.

It incorporates the latest ergonomic, safety, display and drivetrain features in combination with a sleek single-fork design. This enables the pedelec to be folded more conveniently and save additional space.

To appeal to a wider range of users they are given the opportunity to choose their own colour codes and personalize their own foldable pedelec.
