Best folding bikes are items of growing interest
The Montague and the bike Friday varieties of the folding bike have recently gained immense popularity in U.S, while Brompton folding bike are becoming known to the bike enthusiasts of U.K. However, the groups of folding bikes manufactured by the Taiwan companies are also capturing the market as they yield more with higher end models and superfine biking components.

1. Montague and Slingshot folding bikes – They are the best for their excellent performance but they cannot be easily folded due to their large sized wheels.
2. The bike Friday folding bikes – Again an excellent folding product but they seem inconvenient due to their small wheel size, which brings about a harshness in riding and the wheels get heated quite rapidly.
3. The Birdy, Brompton and the small DaHons – These folding bicycles lack an extensive gear range.
What should an ideal folder of a folding bike possess?
1 The folder should fold as small as a 18′ Birdy, a 20′ DaHon Explorer or 16′ Brompton.
2 It should not weigh more than 26 pounds
3 The folder should have a very wide gearing, handles that of a full sized bike along with a suspended frame
4 It should also have folding pedals, which help in reducing the folded width
5 The folder must make use of several standard components and accessories and it should get folded and bagged in less than 2 minutes
It is the neatness, which matters in every equipment and judged from this perspective the best folding bicycle is sure to catch the attention of the contemporary bike freak publics.
