10 Bikes You Should Consider Before Buying a Fixed Gear

Folding Bike

PROS:
• Take it anywhere
• Readily available at any bike shop

CONS:
• Looking like a circus bear
• The inevitable failure to close one quick release will result in a horrifying — yet comical — wreck

The folding bike is the bicycle equivalent of the clip-on tie. It does the job, but isn’t necessarily something you’re proud of owning. And please don’t lock it up anywhere — for starters, it’s an invitation for an enterprising thief to make away with half of it, and it defeats the entire purpose of owning a folding bike to begin with.
