FSIR Spin 3.0
16" (305) wheels
8.7kg stock out of the box
Price: As low as $450 in Bangkok

FSIRs are light, use no proprietary parts, fold quick and easy. Unlike Brompton, FSIR takes standard freehubs and dereilleurs so you can gear them as you like, their handleposts are modern, folding-bike standard so they don't flex, take the more plush 305-size tires, and are so affordably priced that you can buy three, four FSIR Spin for the price of a Brompton.

Folding it

In North America they are rebranded as Solorock. In both cases, they are very sensible value. You'll be able to reduce their already low stock weight by swapping the square taper crankset for a Hollowtech crankset.

if you don't need Brompton's quick and small fold, there are options out there, many of them sensibly priced and without the compromises and disadvantages that accompany Bromptons. You don't have to follow the herd.
