Folding Bike?


Recommended Posts

AdSachs, i have been around this issue many times.

As i am a cyclist myself.

Folding bikes are expensive.

I bought a Airnimal which cost me about gbp 1200.

See www.airnimal.com

Otherwise Dahon make a large range of models.

Their 20inch wheels range fit the car if you remove the wheels (see their websote for more details www.dahon.com).

I think a Brompton would also fit a boxster.

Have you heard anything about Downtube bikes?

Since the bike insn't for me, I'm not prepared to have a permanent bike rack mount. And not inclined to fill my rear trunk with the Porsche Roof Transport System (I have) and a bike rack attachment(I can buy)

We may just go with a standard bike and tell her that if she gets snowed in at work, she can lock the bike and drive it home after the snow melts. :clapping:

just been and had a look.

didn' t know them.

They are fairly similar to Dahon' s apparently.

I can see your point re-porsche roof system and bike carrier.

They are not great to have on the car.

One of these bikes would certainly fill your rear trunk.

You may even have to remove the wheels when folded so that it fits.

The only one which would probably be a decent 'ride-able' bike and that would fit your front boot when folded without removing the wheels would be a Brompton.

They are very popular here in London.

The basic model cost about gbp300.

Eric.
