    So many manufacturers makes one head spin.

    I'm new to folding bikes, and had absolutely no idea that there was such an interest around the world for them. It seams that every day I'm discovering something new. So, what's your bike and why do you prefer it to other brands/models? I know for me, I will definitely upgrade to a better make when I can afford it. I'm enjoying riding my, although inexpensive, folding bike more than any other bike I have owned in the past. How many brands of folding bikes are there out there anyway?

    Cheers
    Wayne

    Take a look at foldingcyclist.com for a list.

    I am partial to Origami, but I own the company.

    Wow, that's an awesome website. I can't believe the number of manufacturers.

    & thats not the whole bike biz . folders are a small niche.

    though some listed, have a main line in their brand + folding bikes..

    That's what counts, actual pedaling, not how fancy your bike or biking clothing are. ;-)

    BTW, if you will limit the brand list to brands you actually can get where you live with a reasonable post sale support, the list will shrink drastically. If you will limit to brands you can test ride, you will be able to count on one hand.
