What an indoherent video.

.Why you wanna have a fouldin boike? Can’t stand the accent

James Felipe says:

Jane Goodnut said it perfectly well. I have a “briefcase bike” and its the best purchase investment that I have ever made. While others lock their bikes to go to the market, and pray its there upon their return, I fold mine and take it in the store. No Tour De France with my bike, just simple easy city living and getting around without the extra baggage a conventional bike instills.

AFreakinProblem says:

lol you do realize smaller wheels accelerate better than large ones if the gear ratio doesn’t suck right? Also the primary audience for folders is commuters. btw all the fastest land speed records have been set with wheels that range from 17 to 20 inches.

Diesel415 says:

The only truth here is that the guy is a tool. Folding bikes can be ridden fast and you can tour on them just like you can be a douche on a big wheeled bike… it’s the rider that matters, not the type of bike.

Bodhi Roether says:

“Little mouse wheels” haha

Lee Hargreaves says:

None of my friends ONLY have a folding bike. By Brommie is one of 7 bikes I own. If I want to go fast I grab the carbon TREK or my Orbit Single-Speed. If I want to explore a city then I take the Brompton and take it into the Cafe with me.

There’s a time and a place for most bikes.
I don’t want to explore a city wearing Lycra and cleats and I don’t want to climb the local Hampshire hills on my Brompton wearing jeans.

Dejan Zabaljac says:

Folding bike,track bike,road bike etc…
They still do the same basic thing…makes you pedal.
Folding bike beats a car anytime.
Just keep pedal…and God speed.

S. Searle says:

The Aussie accent is the worst ever, not helped when this Aussie talks out of his arse.

jim jones says:

What a piece of crap. Bromptons like the one you were riding are excellent bikes which can an do go fast. They are excellent for urban and densely populated cities and apartment living, mix-mode transport in other word getting on an off public transport. You can take them in to buildings which most places will tell you you cant enter with a bike. you can carry it on to planes and carry on baggage. they are great to shop with and they can be put into shopping cat mode. These bike are extremely practical for the average cyclist. People use them for cycle touring, climb the Doi and ridden endurance length ride on Bromptons. This was a silly elitist video

I hope the wisenose girl who learned the truth about folding bikes the hard way this year is healing well.

Jalapeno Killbear says:

Put 700’s on it, she’ll be alright m8 😀

Edwin Henry Blachford says:

I’m building an Angus sliding seat rowing boat that can take a folding bike and folding trailer in the front compartment. So you can pull the boat over dry bits. I can’t imagine any other reason to have a folding bike ( bike riding commando’s launched from submarine torpedo tubes? )

Gabriel Molina says:

dude, it is for commuters who also need to take a bus or a subway, and to be honest I think it is fun, I just got one and enjoy it so much.

Vegan Boobs says:

I have a folding bike and I love it. I ride it to work and don’t have to worry that it’ll get stolen. It’s pretty fast as well and I’ve never had any issues with the steering. Just make sure the tire pressure is always good so you can fly over the bumps in the road ;).

khisanth75 says:

Commuters going into a city or town either riding in or getting a train and then riding to their workplace. Busy train with little room, fold the bike up and off you go. Get to your office, nowhere to put a normal bike, but the folded bike sits nicely somewhere secure inside. Pretty obvious why people might want a folding bike, I doubt very many buy one for sport and exercise!

freedom Cycling says:

Crap Video what was the point

Robert Shuttlewood says:

you’re a twat.

Max Graman says:

haha yess! lmfao

Alan C says:

Folding bikes are pretty cool. I used to cycle to Arcade bus station right up to the door of the bus. Fold the bike in 15 secs. Put it with bags underneath and do my visa run to Mae Sai every month. Get off at Mae Sai , unfold and pedal off whilst everyone else was herded into songtaoews. Great for exploring. Riding to airports , trains stations, buses, folding and going and riding off at the other end is pretty cool. Did Lao, Taiwan, all over Thailand on my folder. Commuting and taking the bike inside your workplace instead of locked up outside in the rain getting robbed. Folders are brilliant for certain situations. There are folding bike races too.

Nix TV says:

I dont know what is it like in your country, but in Thailand you cant board the sky train with full size road bike during rush hours, and not at all in metro. However, both of these transportation system allowed folding bike to be carried on, folded ofcause, at all time. Hoped you had a good time during your stay.

Neil H says:

Good to see you understand the importance of being objective when exposing the truth about a subject. Ignoring this principal can leave you looking like a w****r. I’m sure this is something you would want to avoid.

Jacosz says:

I want a fowding boike because a fowding boike fits in a suitcase.

Christian Winata says:

What is wrong with folding bike? what is wrong with you?

jam man jim says:

This guy is a total knobber, brains = 0. I’m glad he shared his diet with us.

Peeling Pedaler says:

It’s amazing how many people take these hilarious videos way too seriously. They are actually providing a literal reason for folding bikes as if Harley doesn’t understand the purpose himself.

Bob Torres says:

My folder has gone with me on my travels and has allowed to to explore the areas very easily. I have also done some mini tours, commutes to work and can get away with places that I can not do on my road bike. Plus there are lots of buildings, busses and trains that won’t allow bikes to get in. A folder is actually more useful than a racing road bike…………
