7 Reasons to GO IVE! #6 Practicality

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 for fast, Sports Performance Cycles of Desire.

Tyrell truly own the 406 / 451 sports / road racer category. Their fixed frame, all-titanium pure bred 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.

The IVE is a great bicycle to ride. But what makes it such a successful and great challenger in the 16” / 18” category? The following is the sixth of 7 Reasons to Go IVE!

6. Practicality

The IVE has a Rear Rack which has been designed to be an integral part of the folded solution as well as a practical enhancement to the bicycle when being ridden.

The carrier has two small caster wheels at the rear which allow you to roll the bike freely when folded.

On the head tube, what appears to be a design logo is actually a practical location for attaching standard front accessories, such as a bag or basket basket.​​​​​​​​


Tyrell’s philosophy has always been to look to utilise standard components wherever possible. On the IVE you can upgrade to 56T, use a larger cassette and groupset, fit a drop handle for more sporty riding.
