Hi there, I'm pretty new to folding bikes and have little knowledge of bike mechanics in general (though I pick hands-on things up quickly so I intend to learn.) I'm very small: 5' 1", 140lbs. I've recently moved with my family to a smaller townhouse which happens to be within biking distance of quite a bit. It's becoming apparent that my current bike, a hybrid giant, isn't going to fit in my home and be easy to take in and out. In fact, it's currently in storage across town. So, with my Entry-level job in mind, I'm looking at a budget of roughly $200. I've been doing a little research and am stuck between a few options:
The Citizen Bike Tokyo at about $250 with shipping and the options I'd like.
The Walmart Genesis Folding Bike at $200 not including any bike rack or seat replacement.
The Green Zone Premium Edition 16 currently on sale for about $200 with shipping. It includes a comfort seat, bike bag, fenders, bike rack and bottle holder in the price and weighs only 24lbs.
The best value SOUNDS like the GZ but I can't seem to find mention of this bike anywhere. Does anyone know if this bike is of a decent quality?
Also, which bike might be the most beginner-friendly (requires the least setup, doesn't need a bunch of modifications, etc.)?
