The perfect folding bike folds in seconds, has a compact fold, is light enough to lug around and can ride as well as a full-size bike.
Folding bicycles significantly extend the functionality of a bicycle – you can go anywhere you want, and your bike goes with you.
The compact folded size allows the bike to be easily stored indoors, safe against theft and from the elements.
These bikes are typically perfect for commute where you are not really in race mode and enjoy a ride that has the emphasis on comfort.
The foldability becomes very important when you would like to hitch a ride back home with a friend or take public transport. The bike can be easily stashed in a corner.
While Firefox and Btwin do have their own folding variants, we are really excited to have Dahon enter the Indian market.
Dahon has been in the business of engineering folding bicycles for over 25 years and is currently the largest manufacturer of folding bikes in the world – apart from churning out some really well designed bicycles, it also allows them to price these beauties pretty aggressively.
Models currently available in India

WHAT I LOVE ABOUT CYCLING
I love riding my bike. Whether it’s a simple commute, a high-intensity road race, a jaw-grinding brevet, fixie rides thru packed Indian city or a kick-ass technical single track – I love it all. Apart from riding bicycles, I love being all geeky and know everything there is to know about bicycles, technology, bike fit, and service.
I started BUMSONTHESADDLE to share this passion for cycling.
