    Tern Link Folding Bike and Bag £350

    Tern Link Folding Bike - With 8 Speed Shimano Claris. This has been great for me - but as I now working from home I no longer need it. it rides and looks much better than most folding bikes in my opinion the 20 inch wheels provide a stiff responsive ride. The folding is very easy and fast and...

    SOLD Mezzo D10 Folding Bike & Rack Bag

    Mezzo D10, the increasingly rare and ultimate incarnation of Jon Whyte’s original intriguing British design, a great bike for urban living and commuting. The 10 gears help you speed up your commute, and the lack of a hinge in the crossbar means the frame is nice and sturdy, so you won't...

    Smart Turbo Trainer with a folding bike - will it work?

    I'm considering getting a turbo as life-stuff means I don't get much time to ride at the moment ... but space is a bit of an issue. However, I do have a Dahon folder which I used for bike commuting in the before times - it's not doing much at the moment. Are there any friction (i.e. cheaper)...

    Improvements on a folding bike

    Hi Guys. Possibly a bit of a strange ask. But looking at advice to improve the performance of my wife's folding bike. It is a Halfords bought Apollo Tuck. We use the folding bikes when we go away. Beneficial, as they can be loaded in to our Mini and stored there overnight. The Apollo has a 44t...

    Dahon Briza D8 folding bike. What do you reckon?

    Ms Slomo is getting quite keen on riding around town on Boris Bikes but wants something lighter and I've been asked to come up with ideas. She lives in a first floor flat which shares a narrow hall and staircase. I thought that a folder might suit her needs as long as it's got biggish wheels...

    Is it ok to fit QR wheel skewers to a folding bike?

    I've got a Raleigh Evo 2 folder which has big chunky nuts holding the wheels on. Is there any technical reason peculiar to folding bikes why I shouldn't be able to replace these with QR skewers? TIA

    Folding bike (Brompton) mudflaps

    When riding behind somebody else's Brompton in wet weather, M6R to be specific, I could feel quite a bit of spray coming onto my face from that rider's rear wheel. The rear fender is on the short side and its mudflap is short. One reason for these sizes seems to be the interest in keeping the...

    Folding Bike Stand

    Does anyone use this type of stand for their bike? Saw Halfords use them for their collection area So assume they are pretty good. Seems the best option for my size of bike and where it’s going to be stored, just wondering how they are long term?

    Folding Bike Mag

    I used to subscribe to Bicycling Magazine, but never bothered to renew. I haven't looked at the mag lately, but I was wondering if anyone knows of a mag that is dedicated to folding bikes, or at least a magazine that features articles on folding bikes on a regular basis?
