What To Look For In A Folding Bike

When you are shopping for a folding bike, there are many different things to take into consideration. Unfortunately, because folding bikes are not currently widespread in the United States, and around the world, it can be very difficult to know just what to look for in a folding bike. If you've never seen a folding bike, or taken a folding bike for a test drive, it can be even more difficult to know what to look for. It's very possible to be attracted to the size, weight, and convenience of a folding bike without knowing what exactly you want or what to look for. You wouldn't purchase a car if you didn't know what to look for in a car or truck, so you shouldn't buy a folding bike without knowing what to look for.

There are at least six things you should take into consideration before you make your purchase. The selection criteria includes: the size of the folding bike, the weight of the folding bike, the gear ratio of the folding bike, how quick the folding bike folds, the speed of the folding bike, and what are you going to use your folding bike for, and how much you want to spend. Everybody has a list of their own unique requirements, but these are issues you should look for before you buy.

The first thing to look for is the size of the folding bike. Full-sized folding bikes are very awkward to carry in tight spaces, like public transportation. But full sized folding bikes have a smoother ride than smaller folding bikes. The weight is also important because some folding bikes are heavier than others, but the point of a folding bike is convenience in transportation and storage. If you are going to be taking your bike on steep hills, you'll want a lower gear ratio.

Folding bikes can range from one hundred dollars to two thousand dollars. You want to be sure that whichever folding bike you buy, you are getting the best product for your dollar.
