We need the exercise and we love cycling! We worked with our suppliers during this period and we lined up a few sub S$450 – S$550 price tag foldable bikes that must meet below criterion:
- A global brand that has been in existence for 5 years
- FIVE years warranty
- Optional upgrades: Fenders and Rear rack
- At least 6 speeds
- Designed with folding joints that won’t hurt your fingers (or wallets)
- Take rider weights of up to 105kg
- Priced between S$450 – S$550
So here is our lineup (unless stated, prices are without fenders and rack):
Tern – Link A7, ( no front luggage truss mount) at S$499, is the 3rd iteration of the value foldable.
Bickerton Portables -the brand that offers a value 16 inch wheel Junction 1406 S$399 (comes with rack and fenders).
or 20 inch Junction 1306 6 speeds at S$450 with rear rack and fenders
How can one forget Dahon?
Dahon – Route/Vybe at ranging between S$475 and S$550

Cost of ownership: The average ownership of a well designed foldable that you could own and ride for 2 years. That’s only a less than S$20/mth for TWO years (or 67 cents a day investment), a small footprint, comes with gears and gives you plenty of natural endorphins each time you cycle. Do the maths, you’d understand why you should buy a reputable brand – it’s truly affordable now.
