Folding Bike

Postby m_m » Fri May 22, 2009 10:15 am

I am looking for a woman's folding bike but don't really know what to look for! I have looked at a couple of websites but don't know if I need a 14" or a 16" or any of the accessories! I just want a bike I can ride to and from the train station and can easily be folded up to take on the train, kept in my office and stored at home. Does any one know much about this?

Thanks :D

Go to a bike shop and try a few out. If you have a halfords close by, go in and ask them...just ask everything you want to know, try different sizes out...make sure you say you are just looking at the minute. We have a lot of small bike shops but initialy when I was looking I went to Halfords (they are more expensive but I only went in there to look).
A hug is a great gift, one size fits all.

Oh I just thought as well...you should have a look at a few bikes and try carrying them, so see if they would be suitable; as you don't want one which is a tonne weight.

I have no idea why, but for some reason the transair pilots shop sells a fold away bike..

Not sure if its of any use to you?
Remember how the runway lights looked one night long ago when you were lost and found your way, and how-you still dont know?
