I'm new here & from Malaysia. I'm in my early forties, used to cycle in college on a steel racer for commuting & later a mountain bike mainly on the road for fun. Have not been cycling for several years. I'm 5'5" weighs around 59kgs small build, exercise a bit
I'm new to folding bikes but thinking of getting a used one to try out. Who knows I may travel with one later. Bikes here are expensive & I don't want to spend too much. New Dahons cost around US$500 and up here.
There are some shops that import used Jap folding bikes. Are they any good? I'll probably take a look at them physically but the link to the site is here http://gwcycle.blogspot.com/2012/02/...icycle_28.html or
There are some 16" models there as well but cost more.
Am looking at multi speed folding bikes with around US$200 (RM600) to 250(RM800). US$1 is about RM3.10. The cheapest new folding bike I can find here is the Raleigh Ugo at about US$300
Its hilly around where I live & I plan to put them in occasional rail transport to reduce car use. Travel range maximum up to 12km.
I'm also into photography & the foldie can be used for me to move around without burning fuel looking for nice location.
Any one has any experience and/or advice with them? Thanks a lot
