I have a friend that called me and asked if my lbs had folders to test ride. He wants to ride 1 mile to the train and has 2.5-3 miles from the train to work. he is N.E illinois Mundelein Area. Thanks for your input.
Rapid Transit cycles has probably the most different brands of folders in the area to test ride.
They are located in Chicago right off of North Avenue. Not right down the road from you but probably enough selection to warrant the drive. Dahon, Bike Friday, Brompton and a few others all set up for test ride.
