Best Folding Bicycles

  • A folding bicycle is a bicycle designed to fold into a compact form, facilitating transport and storage.

  • Bicycles with a hinged frame which allows them to be made more compact for transport or storage. Most but not all folding bicycles have small wheels, also for the sake of compactness.

They even have a spot for you to test if your bicycle fits the 114 by 64 by 36cm dimensions allowed. Saw this at Kovan station on the NEL. I'm happy there is official approval of foldies on public transport even though I ride all the way to my destinations these days.

The revised allowable size is welcome (the old dimensions were not realistic for most foldies). The official recognition of this kind of mixed mode transport is also good. Maybe more people may give up their cars and commute this way because of the availability of this option (I did).

No more waiting for the dang feeder buses.

But the hours that foldies are allowed under the current trial means people who go to work and go home at regular office hours will not be able to take advantage of the changes.

The bikes are only allowed on trains during off-peak hours, from 9.30am to 4.30pm on weekdays, and after 7.30pm, and all day on weekends and public holidays. For buses, a maximum of two foldies are allowed and only on weekends and public holidays. Quite the bummer.

You can't even take your foldies on the MRT at 6am. Only after 9.30am.

Oh, by the way, the best spot for parking your bike in the NEL trains is at the last and last carriages. There is a space between the end of the carriage and the last seat.

Best. Plastic bag bike. Evar.

If you've ever seen the movie The Harder They Come—and I'm not recommending it—you know how there's that guy who has the totally outrageous huge dreadlocks that are, like, in their own zip code? (Sorry, I can't find a still online.) This bike is the That Guy of bikedom.
