    Citizen and Versa folding bikes

    I'm seeing these selling for pretty low prices in used condition and can't help but wonder if any of these two brands make quality folding bikes? I am possible getting into folding bikes because my workplace won't allow a full-sized bike to be brought inside. Any help would be appreciated

    i perused the available options in your area. honestly, based on my experience, i think you would be better off getting this dahon classic. dahon classics are very well made and durable. comes stock with a sturmey archer AW 3 speed internal gear hub. the seller says it was only ridden a few times. if that's true it could be a great find for 100. plus, it comes with a bag.

    pardon me for a moment while i show some love for this bike..





    i've been admiring the dahon classic a lot lately. i may have to buy one myself this weekend..



    these bikes were built to last and by god, they surely have..



    highly pimpable.. enthusiasts love to modify and update these little work horses..



    compact and neat fold.. and can be trollied along behind you via the stem brace and a little drop-down carriage wheel.



    look at grandpa's face. that's either the face of an old perv or a guy who really loves his bikes. i'm going with the latter.. i think he has a few of 'em..



    elegant mod with some MKS pedals and a sturmey 8 speed hub. look at those chrome stays. hehe. sweet..



    mmmm dat sweet ride..



    ok. enough..

    Thanks for sharing the pics...very nice.

    I concur on statement of general durability.

    I have had a few of these over time, restored them, fix em up, ride em a while and then sell them.

    I always regret it, I think everyone should have at least one of these for the car trunk.

    The one I have now, I got for $15 but is missing a front wheel. I promise not to sell it once it is ridable.
