Hi there would like advice for a foldie.

Price range between 400 to 800
Specs: something that can handle simple graduations (ie have at least some gears)

Also where would be good places to go look at foldies? I know there is diginexx but the bromptons are whew way over my budget. haha

Thank you in advance.

you can go to My Bike Shop at Jalan Mas Puteh (behind clementi stadium). it's a bike shop specialising in foldies. the people there are very experienced and nice too!
A decent entry-level foldie would be the Dahon Eco3, which costs around 600? Anyway visit the shop, they would be more than happy to give valuable advice!

Welcome to the foldie club. Ill start the ball rolling.
Between SGD$400-800

You have a few choices.

1. Dahon. (Eco, Speed D7 and Vitesse)
Currently MBS (My Bike shop has OCBC card discount for Vitesse)
View MBS promo
Look for "Tan" when you are there.

2. Polygon
View Rodalink

3.Giant
View Tay Junction

We have riders with different foldies here, they will be able to give their 2 cents worth.

I would advise you to make a trip to all the shop and do a test ride. The feel of each brand/model is different. Hope to see you soon at our rides.

For polygon, the highest end model is urbano 5.0. priced at $490. Shimano Tourney 7-speed (lowest 14T), chainwheel is 52T. pretty decent for such a low price considering the frame is made in Japan.
