    schwinn world?citizen bike?

    does anyone have any opinions on this bike, or on a favorite 26" or 24" folder in fairly low price range.
    I ride in NYC and have my mom's old English 3 speed and a pieced-together 10 speed, very funky and cheap.
    No proper parking makes me+partner want to get folders.Also curious about the Citizen Bike.
    Thanks for any feedback

    Hi Katemoon,

    Welcome to the forums! I have a Citizen folding bike (Tokyo model) in silver. I've had it for about 6 weeks now and it's a very nice bike for the money. Citizen offers two 20" wheeled model and one 16" wheeled model. No 26" or 24" models.

    If you are going to choose a Citizen, then your best bet is to go for the Citizen Gotham which is their "top of the line" bike. It has a light alloy frame and better components. The Gotham has 20" wheels and only comes in one color: silver.

    I've posted some pictures of my Tokyo here Folder recommendatio and here Bought my first folder.....CITIZEN Tokyo (yellow)

    In those same threads you can also read up on my experience and other's experience with Citizen bikes.

    I don't know anything about the Schwinn World bike so I can't comment on it but if you have any further questions about Citizen bikes, please feel free to ask. :-)

    P.S. I live and bike in NYC too. Hi there!
    Ride what you like. Ride in what you like.
