    24" Folder / Public Transport

    I'm looking on eBay and the usual place for a folder for the first time because I'm going to have to start train commuting in a few months - but only 2 days a week initially. The station is 3 miles from my house, and the end station is about 2 miles from where I'll be working. I notice that 24"...

    Is it worth buying a folder ..

    Well, Mrs Cisamcgu and I both have Bromptons for our multi-modal adventures, but Miss Cisamcgu doesn't, being a student and not liking cycling all that much anyway. However we are all going on a canal boat for 5 days in July and Mrs C and I are taking our Brommies so we can zip off to shops and...

    Apologies if this has already been done to death but I’m new here and haven’t found a similar thread. After buying and playing and selling on a number of different folders (Bickerton, Dahon, Moulton seperables (f frame and Pashley) I bought an old Raleigh folder. I read this article on...

    Dawes Kingpin folder 2011 for sale (Rebadged Dahon)

    My elderly Dad has given up cycling and this https://ibb.co/huZ9NU was in his shed. Appears to be 2011 and this model https://www.thebikelist.co.uk/dawes/kingpin-2011 - I am fairly certain it is a Dahon at heart as the fold etc looks identical to my Dahon Speed P8. He will not have touched...

    Inexpensive folder wanted.

    Never had a folder in my life before, but i've been thinking about getting one to add to my bike stable for a while now. Mainly to bung in the back of the car sometimes and it'll only get limited use. Obviously i dont want to spend a lot for this limited use. Probably up to £300 max and must be...

    16" wheel folder options

    Hi, I have recently changed car to one with a smaller boot My trusty 20" wheel Ridgeback attache squeezes in but I think a 16" wheel folder would be a better long term solution as I can relocate the parcel shelf, etc I've done a bit of web browsing to see what's available (I don't think my...

    Are drivers more considerate of folder riders ?

    I am convinced that I get less stupid overtakes and more consideration when riding the same roads on my Brommie than when out on my road bike. Its not my attitude changing ,I don't do strava or really care much about speed on either bike.

    1975 Dawes Kingpin Folder

    I’ve decided to move on this green KP folder I bought a couple of weeks ago. I’ve decided I’m going to wait for a green non folder to come along. Everything works perfectly on it, I’ve ridden it a few times, the original tubes and tyres have stayed inflated from a couple of weeks ago. The rear...

    Wartime BSA Folder

    Just popped up to the Sywell Avaition museum to poss a bit of time. And I spotted this BSA folder hanging from the ceiling , such a shame it's not exhibited in a better way so people can see it as I should think a lot of people don't realise it's there . This one of many war time and...

    City riding: folder Vs cheaper full size bike

    An advantage often touted about a folding bike is that you can take it into a restaurant with you or a movie theatre, shopping centre, out with your friends and so on. A brompton is the best for this kind of activity. You also don't have to rely on public transport but you can fold it of course...

    Got myself a new folder, but not a Brompton in the end!

    Picked this Phillips Folda up for £20. It's in amazing condition to think its late 79s or early 80s? Thought it's worth a try for the money.

    Free Folder to first person who can collect.

    Hello I brought this folder for the other half to use this summer but she has realized she cannot ride a bike due to her leg injury becoming worse with age. It all works as is ( I took it on a 15 mile trip down local (ish) disused railway line a short while back) but in reality could do with...

    Hercules. My First Folder

    Just a sneak preview. I will take some better photos tomorrow, weather permitting! The date on the hub says 1981. Not in bad condition; odd bits of rust here and there including the rims. Fairly certain the rear tyre is original. It was some impressive splits. Here it is as collected in...

    Need for a cheap folder

    Been on the lookout for a cheap folder as my ability to walk far is getting worse. Been to look at a few that were advertised local but some peoples idea of good condition leaves a lot to be desired. Anyway decided to buy a cheap one as i will only need it for the occasional short trip and carry...

    Ford B-max single speed 16" folder

    Anyone got one? In particular, what gear ratio does it have and will it fit a long legged 6ft rider? We're on hols in Galicia in a few weeks, driving about, and at 150-200 quid tempted to buy one over there to stick in the back of the car...then flog it to a LBS when we're done.

    Recommend me a sub £300 folder

    MrsR is rather taken with my new Brompton and is interested in getting herself a folder so we can chuck them in the car boot and drive to somewhere quiet or off road (canal towpaths and the like). My car is a saloon and it's a pain getting a full size bike in it. However, there is no way she...

    Got my Ice Adventure Folder Yesterday

    Bought it from Ebay, collect tomorrow. Needs a set of mudguards, original or retro fit, if anyone knows some. Bad knee compresses a bit too much so I might have to change the cranks, but I was wearing long trousers when I tried it, can't see a 76 year old in lycra.:wub:

    MATE Electric folder

    Here is a look at the MATE electric folder from Denmark. I like the look of it and at that price it is tempting. https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/mate-the-coolest-and-most-affordable-ebike-ever-bicycle?secret_perk_token=28198a01#/
