So you want to ride a bike everywhere but there are just times when clunking around even the lightest bike just isn't going to work out.

What do you do? Walk? You didn't get into cycling so you could be a pedestrian and you sure as hell didn't get into it to drive somewhere (Kidding. Love you car. Please don't break down.). You got into cycling so you could travel and see the world from a different perspective. At least that's how it started. Now it's an obsession you can't let go of losing friends, family, and other loved ones due to your need to spin. Kidding, I hope that's not happening.

Today we're going to take a look at some folding bikes. What are the advantages? You can take it with you. Disadvantages? You're bound to your bike, but then that was going to happen anyways right? Although not traditionally made to go long distances and more popular in countries not the US you can take these bendable bikes on serious commutes.

I present to you, the fine folks of TwoSpoke.com the folding bikes shared with us by members the world over.

Dahon and Schwiin are definitely my 2 favorite brands on folding bikes. Schwiin is more affordable while Dahon is more on average high price range. I'd love to give it a try with Citizen. It's hard to stop my addiction to folding bikes :D

How about the super sweet Tikit from Bike Friday in Eugene, Oregon. 16" wheels and the fastest folding bike when upgraded with Hyper Fold option.

but not as small as Brompton when folded.

The Tikit comes in three sizes thus it may fit better than the one size fits-all Brompton.

Liking the folding bikes for coffee shopping. Got a bunch of other bicycles and parts but do to health issues I need to downsize. Like the lines of the Citizen Toyko.

Not bad these Bikes. Convenient and light. Super bikes for the City. But have you ever considered to go electric? You should have a check on this website: www.addmotor.com there you will find an electric folding bike which simply looks awesome.
