The Schwinn folder is among the highest-quality folding bikes you can buy for this money. It has great build quality, tough frame and beautiful curved look. However, the bike is not as flexible as other folding bikes, it is heavier, bulkier and there is no locking mechanism when being folded. However, this is a great choice as you still can easily put it in your car trunk. We totally recommend the Schwinn Loop.
