THE QUESTION SECTION
That's where we, like, try to answer your questions.
Or at least those concerning the FlipCrown...
WHAT IS IT?
DO I NEED IT?
FlipCrown is a product to turn a regular bike into a slim bike.
Why a slim bike?
In an urban setting where every square foot counts a bike can be a pain to store. By turning your bike into a flat package it becomes a whole lot more convenient!
A slim bike can be mounted on the wall like a piece of art... because your bike deserves it!
WILL IT FIT MY BIKE?
No need to be shy, you can ask us anything!*
FlipCrown is not for you. Yet...
Don't worry, in the future we will launch a version for these types as well.
LET US KNOW HERE you could use one.
FlipCrown was made for your bike!
FlipCrown was designed to fit the majority of bikes. But to be sure you need to ask yourself one question...
1" headset or 1 1/8" headset*?
With FlipCrown you can easily park or store your bike in a small space.
With FlipCrown you can mount your bike to a wall in the most space-efficient way.
With FlipCrown it's easier to park your bike in a crowded bike rack or on your car mounted bike-rack.
Bike thieves are less likely to steal a bike with its handlebars flipped. You can even lock the FlipCrown to make your bike un-rideble.
WHY ARE THERE 2 FLIPCROWN SIZES?
There are two major sizes of threaded headsets. Namely 1" and 1 1/8". This refers to the inner diameter of the steerertube the FlipCrown screws onto. Here's how you tell them apart.
The 1 1/8" FlipCrown is for you.
The 1" FlipCrown is for you.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
IS IT HARD TO INSTALL?
Nope. Follow along with our convenient tutorial and you should be ready within 15 minutes.
Unless you have a rusty bike off course.
FlipCrown replaces the standard top crown nut on the threaded headset of your bicycle. It allows you to quickly flip your handlebars 90°, thus compacting your bike into a flat package.
Flipcrown has two parts, one is threaded and replaces the crown nut, and is locked with a set screw for added security. The second part is fastened to the quill stem with two set screws.
FlipCrown also comes with a handsome keychain-sized tool to unlock the stem. This will allow you to flip the handle bar in a snap.
WHAT TOOLS DO I NEED?
All tools for installing the FlipCrown are provided with the set. These are a locknut wrench and an allen key or M13 wrench depending on your bike. Plus an Allen key for the set screws. If your bike is old/rusty you may need 'bigger' tools that allow more torque.
We're designers / inventors who also happen to be bike lovers (some would say bike-hoarders). We invented the FlipCrown because we wanted one for ourselves! More ABOUT US
