    What fold up bike should I buy?

    I am a 15 year old boy who wants to lose weight and be a more active person. I live in NYC and I want a fold up for easier traveling and storing. I want a good bike that is not too expensive, any suggestions would be appreciated!

    P.S. Where could I buy a case for the said bike that it will be well protected yet not to bulky.

    First of all, way to go on the active intentions!

    We will need to know what you think you want to spend, and how big & tall are you?

    Used bikes on Craigslist? Downtubes, Dahons, should come in that budget. The Downtube Nova is on sale at $299, gets good reviews on here and there's an entire thread about it. My last Downtube came with a fabric carry case. If you want a hard case then somebody will be along in a minute to explain which one.

    2009/2008 bikes are often available at closeout prices with 20-30% off. Used bikes crop up on here too, check out the For Sale thread at the top of the forum.
