Folding bikes are so convenient, but truth be told,not all folding bikes are truly easy and best for women.
It also seems that the more suited for a woman a folding bike is, the less options you get – which makes it challenging for us ladies to pick the RIGHT folding bike. Best advice is to START by making a list of folding bike features that YOU really want and need.
For scooting around town, traveling on vacation or camping, or easily and cheaply getting around your college campus, you simply can’t beat the convenience, portability, and FUN of a folding bike.
Just fold it up, put in your trunk, and you have a bike everywhere and anywhere you go.
Super easy to keep in your dorm or apartment, too.
off topic…but…speaking of my FitBit…
(see it here) – it’s pretty freakin’ awesome.
Has the bigger “smart watch” face on it and does all the normal FitBit stuff, but also shows text messages and stuff – very cool!
It’s definitely on My WishList!
Ok, back to folding bikes and what women need to know before buying one…
If price and weight are your two top priorities when shopping for a folding bike, be aware that you may have to give up some other options to get that lightweight and easily portable inexpensive folding bike.
If you’re in a hurry….
If you’re like me, you want an affordable/inexpensive folding bike, right?
Let me show you the best ones I’ve found.
Folding Bike Buying Tips for Women
Needless to say, we girls need a few different features in our folding bikes than the guys do.
First off, we women should make sure our folding bike is made from aluminum so it is really lightweight and easy to carry.
Whats the best size folding bike for a woman?
The best size folding bike for us ladies is a 20″ bike so we can ride comfortably.
We also want a bike that folds up (and UN-folds) very easily.
If it folds easily and it’s lightweight, we can truly enjoy all the benefits of a folding bike on our own.
Nothing worse than having to ask, “Honey, can you fold and lift my bike into the car, please?”
Ugh! No way!
