The BERNDS-Gretel – simple and compact!
For all those who do indeed like a compact and easy-to-ride bike but who do not place great importance on the size when folded, we have built the Gretel.
The BERNDS-Gretel, too, possesses all the characteristics of the BERNDS family: the robust, easy-running 20" wheels, the sprung folding swingarm and the solid torsional stiffened, single-tube frame.
In favour of the extra-deep step-through we have forgone the design of a pure folding bike. All the same, the BERNDS-Gretel can still be carried in the car without the need for a bike rack.
