Default Fold Up Bikes

We are considering purchasing fold up bikes due to limited storage space - can anyone give me some ideas of where to purchase them and how is there performance? Thank you.

We have two that we have hardly used and might be willing to sell them PM if you are interest. We used them when we RVed.

There are a number of trikes that fold very nicely. Specifically, I'm familiar with the ICE and HP Velotechnik brands. If interested, you can see them at Hampton's Edge Trailside Bike Shop in Floral City, right on the Withlacoochee bike trail. Their website is: Hamptons Edge Trailside Bicycles Floral City Florida Recumbent Bikes, Recumbent Bicycles Sales, Service, Rentals.. Be forewarned, they are very expensive...$2K+. They are a blast to ride!

Citizen Bike. We have 2, easy to ride and easy to transport. They fit in the foot well behind the front seats of your car.

I got 1958ish Royce Union Folding bike I gave $15 buck for, refurbished it, ride to work everyday. Had it for 39 years, got zillion miles on it. It's not for sale too old school and kinda ugly, but it's never let me down. ...
