British inventor, Sir Clive Sinclair plans to launch a portable bike that will change urban commuting. The world's lightest portable bike weighs 12lbs and can be folded up in 20 seconds. The Independent says:

The A-Bike is made of heat-treated aluminium, folds in three places and sports tiny buggy-sized wheels, which is not obviously suited to pot-holed urban streets… Sinclair Research refused to disclose how many of the portable bikes it hopes to sell or how much they will cost, but it is understood the A-bike will sell for less than the world's most popular folding bike, the Brompton, which starts at £380. The A-bike will be manufactured in Malaysia and its chief design engineer is Alex Kalogroulis.
