Folding bicycles
« on: April 26, 2014, 06:17:13 AM »
Dan and I are looking into getting a pair of folding bicycles. We'd like something a fully-functioning as possible (ie, wheel size, comfort, etc. yet small enough to pack on the back of our motorcycles and take on the train.

We haven't started our research yet, but I thought that I'd toss this question out to you guys in case some of you have any knowledge  :popcorn:

The only brand that comes to my mind is Brompton,  but I know nothing about these clown bikes.   :P

1) why this bike? what do you like about it?
2) does it have a name? Is it available in Europe?
3) it is currently out of stock

Sporty's has had a folding bicycle in their catalogue since their inception.  It's a busy pilot's must-have item.

So, I just went and clipped this from their web site and sent it.  I hoped that it had more information for you.
