I've been obsessed with folding bikes in the past few months. I love the idea that I can carry it around and keep it in my trunk. I don't have one, but I've been reading up a lot about it. Lately, two fo my friends tell me that folding bikes break easily, and I should avoid it. They know people who have folding bikes that broke in half.
I have read the folding bike thread for a while now, but haven't heard about this problem before. I suspect this is a problem among cheaper folders ($200 or less). What are your thoughts? Thanks!
