New kid on the thread
My name is Angelina. I'm a fine art major navigating my way through the new world of cycling.
I live in Texas. I've seen other people biking around town and I've decided to join the ranks. My biking experience stops with my Huffy back in 2004. I always liked riding bikes but got away from it as I got older and busier. So yeah, you've got a newbie on your hands.
I broke out the collection of bikes my dad has accumulated in the garage back home but they're all too bulky for my apartment/car/lifestyle.
So, I'm starting the shopping process, mostly interested in folding bikes, and thats when I stumbled upon you guys thanks to my very best friend, Google.
Yeah, haha that's about it.
I'll see you guys out there!
Welcome to BikeForums Angelina!
The cycling world welcomes you with open arms. Not sure what your price range is for the folding bike, but people just love their Bromptons. http://www.bicycletimesmag.com/conte...w-brompton-s6l
Haha, well like I said, I'm in college so I'm definitely looking for a bike that's more affordable.
I looked at Bromptons online before, but I really don't have $1,000-$2,000 dollars to drop on a folder at this point.
I've really started leaning more towards Citizen's "Miami" bike. It's more in my price range.
These seem to be well-loved by the people who own them and they're cheap:
They have a lot of other models but that one is pretty cheap.
Oh yeah, I've heard awesome things about Dahon's. They're a lite higher than I anticipated spending, but I know you can sometimes find used ones for a little less.
Does anyone know where to find a used one? I'm in the Austin Area.
Slim pickings on Craigslist, and other than that I dont know where else to look really.
EDIT: my price range is about $200-$300.
