Title (EN) ARTICULATION DEVICE FOR THE STEERING COLUMN OF A CYCLE
(FR) DISPOSITIF D'ARTICULATION POUR L'AXE DE DIRECTION D'UN CYCLE
Abstract:
(EN) The invention relates to an articulation device (110,210) of a so-called steering column of a cycle (10, 20), the said steering column consisting of at least one fork pivot and one handlebar tube, this steering column comprising two parts, a first part known as the upper part (101,201) supporting the handlebar of a cycle and a second part known as the lower part (102,202) supporting at least one front wheel (100,200). According to the invention, the said articulation device (110,210) allows the steering column to be folded back along the chassis (103,203) of the cycle (10,20) at the same time as the front wheel (100,200) is folded along the side of the cycle (10,20) and allows the articulation to be locked so as to prevent both types of rotation.
(FR) L'invention concerne un dispositif d'articulation (110, 210) d'un dit axe de direction d'un cycle (10, 20), ledit axe de direction étant constitué au moins d'un pivot de fourche et d'un tube de guidon, cet axe de direction comprenant deux parties, une première partie dite haute (101, 201) supportant le guidon d'un cycle et une seconde dite basse (102, 202) supportant au moins une roue avant (100, 200). Selon l'invention, ledit dispositif d'articulation (110, 210) assure le repliement de l'axe de direction le long du châssis (103, 203) du cycle (10, 20) simultanément au rabattement de la roue avant (100, 200) sur le coté du cycle (10, 20) et le verrouillage de l'articulation apte à empêcher les deux types de rotation.
