If you have posted this question last week, I would have asked you to go down to Axis Cycle to look at the Ventura Folding bike. Quite good foldies with 27 speed, intermediate range selling at $400 only.

Unfortunately, Axis Cycle's last day of biz operation was yesterday. Crying or Very sad

Buying a bike is like buying a car...u must have "feel" for it...^_^

I had joined e northern ride last Sunday. Most of them is all high end bike. Think might cost $1000 n above. For my case, budget come first coz I can't afford tat kind of bike. I bought a $99 foldie but in e end, its performance suck. Now I just sold it off.

Wlau, Aleoca or not.. we welcome u! Good idea to ask around as many have extra foldies.... like Diane and bannna man is trying to let go their bikes... Or go to MBS or other shop to ask around... there are cheaper foldies...You can choose the Flamingo...internal hub and I was told rides good.
