Hi all, newbie here, thinking of owning one foldie but need recommendation from you old birds here.
My budget is $500, getting a foldie so can store it inside my office cupboard.
Basic needs are speed and general transportation. cheers
Also looking for riders in Jurong West area..currently own an old GT with 1.5 slick.
Ride safe everyone.

I am considering either the Eco 3 or 7,halfway or F2.
