Tiklop Initiation Ride

In the cycling community, there is a group of cyclists raving about folding bikes. I got in the bandwagon to try it out myself. I got hooked. Yesterday, I tried multimode commute. I stuffed it inside a bus compartment, then rode in the MRT. Then rode 46 kms, stopping by Baclaran before heading home.
The folding bike is an amazing machine. It transforms from a person carrier to "luggage" in around 30 seconds.

What are my thoughts on this bicycle type?

  • It's portable, you can stow it inside the trunk of your car, or a bus compartment.
  • It's allowed in the MRT folded. Railway transits allow the folding bike inside their trains.
  • Very simple and fast to fold and unfold. It takes approximately 30 seconds to change the bike from one mode to the other.
  • Relatively fast for its size. Despite the 20" tires, the gear ratio is so designed that the bike is fast.
  • Fun fun fun! Riding this bike is just pure joy. 
You don't have to take my word for it, you just have to try it our for yourself. Happy Bike Commuting.
