Newbie in New Jersey

Hello all,

I'm getting back into biking for health and fitness aspect. Also for the simple pleasure of it.
This forum is great way to gain and share info and ideas.
I am happy to say i have just recently purchased my first folding bike , and cant wait to try it out.

Regards,

Tony

Hi Tony, welcome to the Forums! There's a lot of great information on here. Hopefully our mild winter will continue, and you'll get lots of time to use that new bike!

Welcome to BikeForums!

I agree with HigherGround, hopefully the warm weather will continue. Although I feel pretty stupid now since I rushed to get my studded tires for this winter.

What was the reason for getting a folder? I had a cheap folder that I used for winter riding about 25 yrs ago - I found the short wheelbase made for great manoeuvrability in traffic. I also took it with me when I was working in NYC for 10 wks.

Hi Andrew

I purchased a folder because of its small size, We normally go camping in the summer.And the small size will enable me to take them with us more easily, and also be able to store them away when not in use.

I also liked the look and construction of the folders. I received my Downtube NS today and it is a great looking bike. i cant wait for the weekend to try it out.
