About Us

FoldErGo started out as a vision of Founder/CEO George Cseh:

“I’ve always loved the safe, comfortable feeling of riding a bike but it simply wasn’t practical for my on-the-go lifestyle due to its bulky size.
As scooters are more travel-friendly for taking on buses or trains, throwing in a car or stashing under my desk, I test-rode a bunch of them. But I never got that “in control” feeling that I had on the bike, especially when it came to riding on busy streets.

Determined to combine the safe feeling of a bike with versatility of a scooter, I came up with FoldErGo. Now when I’m scooting around town, I feel as safe as if I were riding a bike. Once I get to the office, I simply fold ‘er up and tuck it under my desk. It truly is the Next Generation Scooter.”
