Sven Cycles announce modification service... so their bikes can fit inside a rucksack or briefcase

Dorset-based handmade bike brand Sven Cycles are proving it's not just Bromptons that are train and plane friendly with the announcement of their modification service...

 Any full-sized bike from the Sven Cycles range can now be modified with collapsible sections so it can be packed into one of their purpose-built briefcases or rucksacks.

Sven Cycles launch semi-customised bikes

Owners will just need one small tool to disassemble their bike, which can then be stowed away inside either of the travel solutions, both of which meet airline standards so you won't incur extra baggage charges. The weight of a Sven custom bike varies between 7.7kg and 11.3kg, all made with Reynolds steel tubing.

The modification service means you can take one of Sven's full sized road bikes on your travels in a rucksack 


The bespoke service and hand-crafted bikes Sven Cycles offer obviously don't come cheap, and the modification to make your bike collapsible is an additional £600 on top of the price of a bike that will cost between £2,500 and £5,000. The bike briefcase is £400 and the rucksack comes in at £200. 


After cobbling together a few hundred quid during his student days off the back of a hard winter selling hats (long story), Jack bought his first road bike at the age of 20 and has been hooked ever since. He was Staff Writer at 220 Triathlon magazine for two years before joining in 2017, and reports on all things tech as well as editing the live blog. He is also the news editor of our electric-powered sister site eBikeTips. Jack's preferred events are time trials, sportives, triathlons and pogo sticking (the latter being another long story), and on Sunday afternoons he can often be found on an M5 service station indulging in his favourite post-race meal of 20 chicken nuggets, a sausage roll, caramel shortbread and a large strawberry milkshake.
