    Peerless Folding Bikes?

    Does anyone have any experience with or can steer me towards reviews of these bikes. I saw them on eBay & on BoatsToGo.com (same info), but so far haven't found any mention or opinions on the folding bike threads. It looks from the website like they have decent components and would make a good Dahon alternative. I'd appreciate any information from my learned peers, Thanx.

    Sorry, people, the company name is Peerless, and it looks like a Chinese Dahon copy. On the website I didn't see any mention of a frame or parts warranty (makes me suspicious before opening my wallet), but the components are interesting. I'd appreciate any owner reviews.

    I've got a Dahon Mariner D7 and I'm really pleased with. I've only got sixty six miles on it so far but then I just got it. So, so far so good.

    I've got a jack on my wish list - also commute into london. How are you getting on with the handlebars ? do you unscrew them or are they OK fixed - ie any 'tut tut's from bikeless passengers

    Nice. Love it. Always been a big fan of the Phillips brand, mainly because my last name is Phillips (heh). I, too, just assembled a fixed folder, one that was also badged by the Raleigh company as one of the old school English brands that they bought out at one point or another (Rudge)...

    One of the people in our group rides a Richey folding bike. Not really folding though. The seat tube, chain stay and seat stay totally separate from the top tube, down tube and bottom bracket. Really well done. It fits in a case small enough to be airport checked with regular baggage; no extra charge so I am told.

    Folder beginning with a P.

    You want to know a folder beginning with a P? I just bought a 20 inch wheel folder off of eBay thinking that it might be an Elswick. Turned out to be a Pollonia Mayfair!
    Made in Hungary with a Shimano 3 speed hub. Poor quality and terrible paint/chromework, but works very well, with almost infinite adjustment of seat and bars. Bit like the bike equivalent of Skoda and Wartburg...

    Now am proud owner of a Mezzo to partner my Downtube IXFS. Both lovely bikes in their own ways. To think less than a month ago, I didn't own a bike, let alone a folder...

    First pic of the Mezzo is here. More to come - unfolded, of course - in the Mezzo thread I just resurrected.

    I am new to this forum. I am looking to buy a cheap folding bike for lite commuting, etc. Does anyone know whether I am being foolish looking into an internet offer of a Citizen folding bike for $179, given that I also see folding bikes being sold for many times that on the internet? Thanks for any thoughts.

    tfarhner said it could be done, and I finally got around to trying it. Bromptons can tow kid trailers in a pinch, but I'm not sure I'd want to do it on a regular basis, especially since I'm pulling two instead of one.

    i have a 5 speed kent folding bike with rear suspension. it has a strange rear brake, like the brake pad is warpped around half the axel and pressing the lever pulls & tightens the pad around the axel to slow. its a really smooth ride but it doesn't go very fast and is impossible when climbing hills. I think bought for $96.
    I'm 5'11" so its small for me but it gets the job done. Better than riding the bus or walking.
