When it comes to city travels abroad, short trips and eco-friendly way of commuting, your best buddy is a folding bike or electric bike. Folding and electric bikes have different sizes, quality and brands but the most common feature they share is being able to compact them in a smaller package without needing any tool. When it comes to folding bikes structures, there are small-wheeled and large-wheeled, one-speed folders, folders with gears and folders made from every material you can think of. Unlike regular bikes, folding bikes have a very good appeal to riders who need a bike that will fit into less space. It is hard to store conventional bike especially if you have a small apartment, as well transporting it to a bus or train, or parking inside most offices. These kinds of problems disappear with foldable bikes.
Using a folding bike allow you to explore a place in lesser time, skip boring areas and move on to different interesting places easier, go on bicycle tours with other people and pack your bike for flight in just minutes. Before buying a folding bike, you have to consider its features such as the performance, foldability, wheel size, sizing and fit, specification, carrying luggage as well as the price. You need to think about the folding speed and the size when folded when considering the folding aspect of a folding bike. If you are folding and unfolding your bike many times in a day, then folding speed is very important in making your decision. Depending on the type of folding bike, the folding speed may range from ten seconds to ten minutes. The folding size is directly proportional to the wheel diameter with the bike volume increasing 100 cubic liters per wheel diameter. It is hard to convince people that it’s okay bringing a folding bike inside a public transport because it does not exceed 200 liters, so make sure you carry a cover with you.
Higher-performing folding bikes allow you to feel the pleasure when you’re riding a regular bike, and this is affected by the gear ratios, wheel size, the handle post or frame stiffness and your position on the bike. The best performing folding bikes usually have a 20″ wheel diameter and up, with a good frame design, good quality frame or handle post and great parts. When it comes to the wheel size, select larger wheels if you plan to go long distance with a wider gear range, and a smaller or more compact size if you will be bringing it in a public transport regularly.Doing Products The Right Way
