List of folding bike manufacturers
Hi all, brand new hear, I started riding bikes again as an adult about 10 years ago, I have owned 5 bikes in that time, right now I just have a recumbent, but I also owned a folding recumbent trike for a while, the trike just wasn't my cup of tea, but I loved the folding feature great for fitting it safely and securely in the back of my Honda for transport to the local trail.
So now I am looking for a two wheeled upright bike to ride on some further home rides and trails, I don't want to break the bank with a new bike, but I don't want a dirt cheap bottom of the barrel model either. 6,7 or 8 speeds would be good. something with flat bars, with a fair amount of room for adjustments, I think I will put a nice spring suspension saddle from brooks on it. Something that can have a rack fixed to the back of it, for a trunks bag and maybe a small set of panniers.
I don't plan on any world tours on a folder, but maybe some day trips or even an over night trip.
I'd love to find a nice used Bike Friday or Brompton, but that might not be very likely, so any suggestions on something that might fit my intended use?
