If you are riding a bicycle, you might want to bring your smartphone anywhere you go. You absolutely don’t want to miss important calls but it is not the only benefit. Either iPhone or Android phones will provide useful functionalities like music player, Google Maps, GPS tracker and you can install an app to keep track of your routes, calories, exercising time and miles traveled.
Many people think that they can’t carry their kids with a folding bike because the bikes often use smaller wheels. That’s totally a misconception.
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.
