Folding bikes offer so much versatility. Whether you set out in the car for a riding spot out of your neighborhood or its a “ride” to take on camping trips, these guys can be stored in the back somewhere!! If you thought that you couldn’t have a bike because you have nowhere to store it, (like in a shed) but you have that empty hallway, then these are the answer. Commuting to work on public transport is another reason to go “folding”. Less space on the transport or at the office or workshop is no problem with these space savers; and the beauty of them is that they are a truly respectable alternative to a “real” mountain bike if you choose wisely.
And as for looks; these babies look really COOL! We have selected a range of bikes here that should satisfy many different personalities while keeping a respectable, affordable quality.
