Folding bikes are bicycles that fold into a compact size in seconds without using tools.
Bikes that fold compactly are more versatile than traditional, non-folding bicycles because folders are easier to store or transport.
Following are the folding bikes we currently sell. Although not shown in the list below, we proudly offer Brompton folding bikes. Bromptons are custom built to an owner's specifications, resulting in @ 4 million ways to spec out a Brompton. For this reason, if you're interested in Bromptons, visit our Brompton folding bike page so you can see our current inventory or custom build your own Brommie.
By the way, shipping within the USA (lower 48 states) is included in most of the prices shown below.
a folding bike makes it easier to go bicycling more
often to a wider variety of places and with fewer
worries about storage or theft.
Your Passport To More Places
Unlike standard sized bikes, folding bicycles can
be carried aboard trains, ferries or buses and stow
away easily in car trunks, small planes, RV's and
boat holds. Folders are also allowed in places where
normal bikes are refused (apartment buildings, post
offices, grocery stores, banks, restaurants, shopping
malls, office buildings, elevators, escalators, etc)
and can be stashed discreetly into a carry bag if
you wish to remain inconspicuous. Some bikes even
fold into a suitcase that can be checked onto an airliner.
De-clutter Your Garage
You can buy a bike that folds tiny enough to fit in
the smallest car trunk, under your desk at the office,
in a cubby hole in your dorm room or even in a luggage
locker; yet, riding the folding bike is like cycling
on a full size bike. Some folders even adjust to the
size of the rider, allowing families to cut down on
the number of bikes in the garage or carport because
the same bike can be used by a child or adult.
Hate Folding Bikes
Bicycles tend to get stolen when they're unattended.
Since your folding bike is allowed to stay by your
side rather than out on the street, thieves have fewer
opportunities to steal your bike. No more walking
back to your bike only to find a cut lock!
Within the last few years, new technologies and materials
have made folding bikes easier to ride, faster to
fold, lighter to carry, smaller when folded, more
suitable for riders of various heights & weights,
and sturdier too.
>Fold Compactly Yet Pedal Normally
Although some folding bikes have small wheels, the
better models of micro folders (CarryMe, E-Z Pack,
Mobiky, Strida) are geared to compensate for their
smaller than usual wheels. The result is a bike with
a ride equal to a traditional, full size bike that
is also easy to store, theft resistant and easily
Make Public Transit Even More Practical Many
folding bikes are small enough to take with you on
public transportation (planes, trains, subways, buses,
taxis, escalators, elevators, etc.). CarryMe, Mobiky
and Strida folding bikes roll even when folded and
they can easily be stowed away in the smallest car
trunk, under your desk at the office, in a dorm room
or even in a luggage locker. Additionally, with little
or no disassembly, they'll fit in a suitcase so you
can check them onto your next flight and go for a
bicycle ride at your travel destination.
Test Rides and Folding Bike Rentals
RideTHISbike is open daily from 10 am to 5 pm Central Time (closed Tuesdays). If you'd like to try out a folder, we invite you to stop by during business hours. There's no charge to take a spin around the block. Longer rides are considered rentals; however, half the rental cost goes towards your bicycle purchase.
