Being a fan of MINI Cooper might be a prerequisite for purchasing the MINI Cooper folding bike. It is a flashy advertisement on 2 wheels. But at the same time it is built with solid components, equipped with 8 speeds, and could be a solid choice for any commuter with a tiny trunk.
The Vilano Midtown is a full size folding bike, equipped with 26 inch wheels. It is a budget friendly bike which means there are quite a few cheap components and much of the bike will need tightening and tuning right out of the box. For a folding bike it is quite heavy weighing over 30 lbs.
The Allen Sports Central ranks in the middle of the Allen Sports folding bike line up for design, capability and price. It is competitive in the 7 speed category with a patented four link front suspension, aluminum frame and weight of 25 lbs. The Central is a great middle of the road commuter bike option!
The Xootr Swift is a good, lightweight commuter bike. With 8 speeds it can handle a decent commute. It’s only real flaw is the unique folding style which is easy and quick but does not collapse the bike down very small.
The Montague Navigator is a full size bike that also folds! With 27 speeds and 700c pavement ready tires this bike is designed to make commuting smooth and painless. The patented folding system is unique to Montague bikes and makes them the strongest folding bikes on the market.
The Montague FIT is the top in its category by Montague. Its patented FIT frame makes it the strongest folding bike on the market and the carbon fork makes it the most responsive (expensive) pavement choice from this brand. If you are looking for a solid road bike that travels well then this is the best of the best with 30 speeds and only 26.5 lbs.
