Why a folding bike?
Folding bikes are often an overlooked cycling option. Due to their history of being heavy and not of high quality, they are not the first type of bike people think about. But they are incredibly versatile and the market offers a lot of very attractive options.
Perfect for train + car + bike + apartment
Maybe your city centre apartment block does not have bicycle storage, maybe it has but you have heard a lot of your neighbours had a bike stolen from there. Maybe you need to take the DART from time to time (or want to have the option if the weather turns during the day) or need to drive to the station. Maybe you take the train on a regular basis and have witnessed the lack of space provided by Irish Rail in their carriages. You may also want to travel through Europe and want the convenience of hoping on the saddle as soon as you have arrived at your destination. Whatever your reason, a folding bike would solve a lot of those issues. From lightweight fast bikes to ultra convenient electric-assist motors, there is likely a foldable bike out there to suit your cycling needs.
