A few weeks ago, I had an opportunity to review the STRiDA SX, the first A-shaped folding bike I had ever used. I had good impressions with that bike and found it one of the best portable solutions.
The STRiDA SX is exactly what I imagined of a folding bike in the first time I heard about the concept. It looks so portable with a weird A-shaped design and many people love it, especially in the UK.
Nobody is too heavy or too tall to ride a bike, even that is a folding bike. I heard stories of many people saying that they want the portability of folding bikes but they are doubtful that the folding frame and small size can withstand their weight. Therefore, they gave up.
Not long ago, I had the chance to test Allen Sports Downtown, the cheapest folding bike of the manufacturer, and I quite loved it. In this post, we are going to review the more high-end and of course more expensive one, Allen Sports XWay. Does its performance deserve the extra money and what makes the difference? Let’s check it out.
There’s been a strong belief among folding bike enthusiasts that Brompton is a luxury brand with high-quality products that could last for years and won’t suffer from depreciation. I had the chance to test ride the Brompton S1E Single-Speed Folding Bike in the last few months and I must say it is really different to other bikes we have reviewed here. Let’s check it out.
Honestly I didn’t know much about Allen Sports before trying the new bike. All I know is that this is a family owned company well known for its high quality rear mounted bicycle carriers including the best-selling Allen Sports Deluxe 2-Bike Trunk Mount Rack. I am also using a product of Allen Sports, which is the Allen Sports 5W light set and really it is worth every penny.
When I first received the Brompton folding bike, I was very confused because the kickstand couldn’t be found anywhere. It was so inconvenient and I had to fold it or lean it up against a wall on the first day. I thought they removed the kickstand to reduce the price but I was wrong.
Elegant is the word for describing the new Dahon Ios S9 Black bike. It is truly a rare beauty to behold on a road with its shadow black colour and anodized gold trim. Anodizing the trim makes it resistant to corrosion. It is remarkable that this bike goes for a very affordable price.
One of the biggest problems with almost every bike rider is the unadjusted derailleurs. Derailleur is a part of bike that is present at the back and front of the drive chain where it derails that chain into the suitable place. This is something a beginner or an uneducated person cannot tackle. They definitely need to get some assistance or take it to an expert.
