When we first published this series of "7 Reasons To Buy A Tyrell", Tyrell was a brand renowned for building the very best of Mini-Velos.
With their iconic "Slant" frame design, choice of the best and correct materials for each model and an obsessive attention to detail, Tyrell Mini-Velos have built a reputation a fast, Sports Performance Cycles of Desire.
Tyrell truly own the 406 / 451 sports / road racer category. Their fixed frame, all-titanium purebred road racing PK1 and PKZ (both 451) and their 10th Anniversary indulgence, the 406 folding all-titanium XF are the cream of the small wheeled speedsters.

Tyrell have taken their years of building fast, performance Mini-Velos and their inspiration for small wheeled cycling and created the IVE.
All of their principles of a fixed rigid frame can be seen in the IVE, but Tyrell have taken a next step to innovate on new ways to fold the rear fork and wheel and the front wheel around the frame and to build added comfort and control into the bicycle.
The IVE uses a cro/moly steel hydroformed frame, to give strength, comfort and lightness.
The quick release button on the handle bar and the folding mechanism make folding the IVE simple and convenient - essential if taking onto public transport or into the office.
If you are looking for a modern, compact folder that riders with a positive attitude but feels like a larger, strong riding bicycle, then the IVE is a great option.
