Folding Bikes R Us


Think folding bikes just have 20″ wheels? Think again! From the compact 16″ wheeled Brompton’s to the beefy Montague Paratrooper Highline or Tern Joe P27, each sporting 27.5″ wheels, we’ve got ’em all. We’ve even got folding trikes.

Each one folds differently, and is designed for a different use.

Who uses a folding bike? A sampling from just one day… a young mom walking in for a car rack so she could take her 9 year old on the trails. With 2 folding bikes that anyone in the family can hop onto, she didn’t need that car rack.

A commuter who gets on the train, yet has 3 miles to get to work.

A larger man who likes to ride hard on the trails. Or the stylish bride to ride around town. Or the retiree wanting to ride along Pennypack Park with her husband, and, unsure of her balance, who will consider the folding trike.

We love the diversity of customers that walk through our doors, seeking a diversity of folding bikes for their specific needs.

Although we plunged into the world of independent bike shops via electric bikes, we’ve slowly been building up our lineup of folding bikes.

Beginning with Dahon Bikes, we brought in the Xootr Swift, all with 20” wheels.

For the taller, larger and more aggressive riders, we carry the Montague bike line, with 26” and 700c wheels.

Our best-sellers remain Tern Bicycles, offered in  20”, 24” and 26” wheels.

For a slightly different feel, you can sample the Fuji Origami & Allen Central, both with 20” wheels.

Many people have come asking about a smaller folding bike, one with 16” wheels with a very compact fold; one designed and hand-made in the UK; one called the Brompton. We’re proud to announce that we now sell & service Brompton bikes as well.

Brompton bikes have one basic frame, with a variety of handlebars, gearing and accessory options.  Each bike is custom-made in their London factory.  Ride one. Fold one. Rent one. And begin to re-imagine your daily routine.
