My potential first foray into “Folders” and rather than just rely on trade expertise I would really appreciate the impartial advice from owner experts.
I’m looking for something to ride for a possible cycle/train commute into London and after riding into work today or my road bike, realise that ideally I want something quick as well as compact and transportable.
I’m a regular cyclist and have owned a variety of road bikes, MTB, Hybrids and traditional, but my technical knowledge is average. Cycling style is speedy, with occasional need for a blast to blow away the cobwebs.
The journey (each way):
Cycle 3.5 miles to station – two small, short hills
Train – often very full – 1 hour
Cycle 3.5 miles to office
Local dealers stock Brompton, Birdy, Airnimal and Dahon, so logically I’d like to stick with those. Mezzo I will consider as well as they’re a plenty in London.
Budget is up to £1k.
Thanks in advance
