Doing Bikes The Right Way

Bicycling 2017: The Folding Bike Solution

If you love bicycles and you’re like any other New Yorker who is having problems looking for a safe and dry place to store your bike at home, then that may compromise your bicycling experience. Your apartment is restricted to even accommodate a small inch, and the street seems to be a huge parking area to find new owners. When you try to enter your bicycle in your apartment building, the concierge stares at your bike as if it is a giant two-wheeled rat and refuses to let you enter onto the elevator. You may also want to take your favorite bicycle on a trip requiring transit but just can’t because of restricted rush hour or outright bans on bikes on buses or trains. The best solution you are looking for might be a folding bike.

Folding bicycles are bicycles which are designed to be into a compact form which facilitates storage and transport. Folded bicycles are easily carried inside the buildings, on public transportation, and can be stored in a car, living quarters, boat or plane. A folding bicycle has different folding mechanisms which offer a distinct combination of durability, weight, ride, folding ease, folding speed and price. Folding bikes may be more expensive than non-folding bicycles because of their higher number of parts, more demanding structural requirements, complexities of their folding mechanisms, and they’re more appealing to the market. When shopping for a folding bike, it is best to take into consideration the choice of model on top of the cost in order to achieve the practicality and ensure the best features such as a compact folded size, faster and quick easy fold. As compared to non-folding bikes, folding bicycles come with a wider and more complex adjustments in order to accommodate different riders, because folding bicycle frames are only made in one size.

Folding bikes have different folding mechanisms such as half-fold or mid-fold, triangle hinge, magnet folding and suspension system, break away, vertical fold and other folding styles. A half-fold or mid-fold bicycle follows the traditional frame pattern of a safety bike’s diamond frame, with a single or double hinges for them to be folded in half. A folding bicycle with a vertical fold possess one or two hinges along it main tube and chain and the seat stays, allowing the bike to be folded vertically. A triangle rear hinge can be achieved by having a hinge in the frame, with the wheel folded down and flipped forward, underneath the main frame tube.
