Folding Bikes

So I'm contemplating buying a folding bicycle. Mostly for storage reasons at home and to be able to bung it in the car for jaunts in the countryside.

Now, I don't know much about the folders out there other than Brompton who, whilst being shiny, are also relatively expensive.

Does anyone know of any other folding manufacturers which provide for the slimmer budget, or is it just best to pony up the cash for a trusted brand?

mr_tom, how's your Brompton working out? Anything you'd change to the spec?

  • Current Music: Iron Maiden - The Longest Day
What I'd really like is somewhere to borrow/hire one for a short while so I can decide if it's worth the investment.
My worry about the 20" wheels is portability, I guess. The reason the Bromptons are so appealing is how compact they become when folded.

I'll have a poke around the range and see how it compares. Thanks. :)
