The frame of the electric bicycle folds in to half, both the wheels fold under the frame, the seat-post and seat folds, and finally the handlebar folds. Every part that folds can be secured via a built in lock that ensures the whole two wheeler remains folded.

Thoughts About The Xiaomi Himo H1

While last mile connectivity is slowly becoming a big segment in India, we think that the Himo H1 is not really suited for the country. There are too many folding parts and an equal number of vandals. The Himo H1 looks great, probably rides great, but we think its best suited for China.
