Hello po mga bossing, planning to buy a folding bike next month. Gamitin lang po pang strolling sa nuvali. Nanghihinayang po kasi ako bumili ng bike rack for my mtb so I thought why not just use the money for the bike rack towards a Bnew Folding bike. Currently eying on a Peerless Junya and Firebird. Leaning more on the Junya since it's lighter, cheaper, and cleaner frame design(for my perception) but what are the main differences of the two? I'm also curious with parts availability and compatibility in case I plan to upgrade parts in the future. Also, are there other folding bikes within the 13-15k price range I should also consider especially if they're a better choice and value for money than my initial 2 choices. God Bless and many Thanks.

Kung type mo classic look, sa Dream na pero kung gusto mo alloy frame doon ka na sa Eco C7. Medyo hindi maganda paint job ng Peerless. Madali magasgas ang pintura.

Di nako nakatiis. Bumili na ako ng FB bago ko pa magastos sa ibang bagay ang pera ko. Eto na binili ko.

Ganda ng ride, komportable, walang alog, at di mahirap sa ahunan. Madulas lang ang pedasl pag basa. Nabinyagan kaagad ng ulan at baha.

Is anyone commuting here using a folding bike and has a bus ride as part of the trip? I was back reading and all I saw were posts about the LRT and MRT. I plan on augmenting my commute to work with one of these, but it seems hard to get on and off buses.

i've tried bringing my foldy to manila via padyakoldaway from san pedro , laguna and decided to take a bus going back home due to rain ... though folded they wont allow you to bring it inside the bus, so i had no choice but to place it on the side compartment, good thing walang gasgas

Thanks for the info everyone. There goes my dream of an "assisted" bike commute. I guess it's really all the way or nothing for me, except if I give the PNR a try.

Smile Re: folding bikes

Good day mga sir!

Need help and suggestions lang po. Planning to buy my first foldie. My choices are the Dahon Vitesse and Dahon Eco C7. Which of the two is sturdier po? This is my primary concern, since my weight is at 220 lbs., at baka di ako ma kaya. I plan to use it primarily for urban city riding and probably some uphill road.

TIA!

Vitesse D7 and Eco C7 can carry a max of 105KG (230 lbs), almost identical with parts...The only thing I see is the weight difference. I believe Vitesse is aluminum alloy frame and ECO is steel.

medyo OT
para sa mga folders na mahilig sumakay sa train o kung sasakay ba dahil siksikan. Meron na pong app na para malaman kung siksikan ba sa train o hindi.

Parang MMDA app din ata ito, except pang android phone pa nga lang. Wala pa sa Ios
