Hi-tech aluminium frame mountain bike with innovative Telelever front suspension
The Q6 bike is constructed of a high-tech lightweight aluminum frame and engineered for the ultimate ride. A rapid-action catch and folding joint lets riders quickly fold and store Q bikes in most car trunks, airline luggage and carrier bags, with the cables protected inside the frame. Their portability makes the Q Bike ideal for the commute to work and school.
BMW took its motorcycle design technology - Telelever suspension and applied it to an engine-less bike to create the Q6.S model. This patented application provides comfort and stability on rough terrain, limiting the compression of the front suspension for stable braking and virtually eliminating "front-end dive" and other such mishaps. The 27-speed bike also features Shimano XTR components. A Rapid Fire gearshift, which provides a quick, precise change in riding with three gears in the front and nine gears in the rear. Stopping power comes from Magura Louise single pot calliper disc brakes.
This unusually configured bike still rides well and looks great - difficult to get your hands on one nowadays though.
