Folding Bikes

Folding BikeFor those who are having a headache to squeeze your bike in the car trunk for that long awaited biking trip, the folding bike is your savior of the day. Compact and designed to fit into your car trunk, they come in various forms and designs, with price ranging from frugal to near-car prices.
