Folding Bikes

Transport problems solved

What could be more useful than a bike that you can take virtually anywhere? A folder is a real transport integrator. Take it anywhere: by car, taxi or public transport. Its foldability allows it to cope with many of the problems associated with day to day cycling. For instance, security is less of a hassle with a bike that you can keep indoors. At Cycle Heaven we have always been fans of folding bikes, in particular as a solution to many of the problems associated with personal transport in urban areas. Now you can find out more at our specialist folding bike shop at York Railway Station. If you find the station difficult to get to, then visit our main shop, which stocks all our best selling models of folding bike including Brompton.

Small Wheels Good: nippy and agile

The bikes that we sell are light years away from the notorious "shoppers" of the 1970s that gave folders such a bad name. They get round the problems traditionally associated with small-wheeled bikes by using a combination of appropriate gearing, high-pressure tyres and suspension. In many situations small wheels actually enhance their performance relative to conventional bikes - in urban stop-start traffic conditions small wheels will accelerate quicker , whilst a short wheelbase and light steering make these bikes very agile. Small wheels also make for a smaller folded package that will fit into a cupboard and because folders stay with you, they are genuinely door to door transport, so you don't have to waste time looking for safe parking.

Folding Bike Specialists

At Cycle Heaven we currently stock numerous brands of folder which we consider to be absolutely the best available when all things are considered - performance, foldability and price. Read about their specification here and then feel free to visit us for a test ride - virtual reality is no substitute! We will advise you on which folder best suits your needs. If you do decide to buy, remember that our service does not end with your purchase - at Cycle Heaven you get one year's free servicing - that's a year's labour on your bike for free.
