Thinking of changing to a Folding Bike

Over half of the world’s population lives in a city and each day we all endure the commute to offices, schools, coffee shops, malls and home again. One in three London commuters use the train to help ease the strain and many are now using bicycles to complete the journey either to or from the train station.

At some stage they have to carry their bicycle and, at some time in the near future trains, buses and aeroplanes will stop allowing full size bicycles on board as the push for space and weight limitation increases. So, if you are a cyclist it makes sense to buy a light weight folding bicycle now.

Owners of folding bicycles are liberal in their praise of folding bicycles. Here are a few of the advantages they’ve shared with us:

1. Folding bikes make commuting easier

2. The Urban Range is lighter to haul on and off public transport and generally more accepted as it folds quickly and into a small pack

3. It doesn’t take up much room at home in an apartment or terraced house/flat

4. The specifications are higher on folding bikes these days

5. The prices are comparable to traditional upright bikes now

6. They are not as flimsy as they look

7. There is a wide variety of colours and types of fold ups now

8. As parking prices rise the demand for folding bikes will increase

9. A folding bike is less likely to be stolen as you can carry it with you

10.Owners feel they are helping the cities go ‘green’

11.Folding bikes can be adjusted substantially to fit all (Children from around 14 years)(Max rider inside leg is 34″)

As Britains ‘eco-town’ policy grips the country, more and more commuters will be swopping their cars for folding bicycles.
