I want to promote the use of folding bikes as a means of transportation here in the Philippines. This blog is meant to share my experiences as a folding bike user. I chose a Brompton for its classic style and compact fold, but other brands like Dahon, Strida, Bike Friday, Flamingo and Peerless produce good foldies as well.
Hi, all! It's been a while. When I started riding folding bikes in 2009 there were only a few brands available in the Philippines like Giant, Dahon, Peerless, Doppelganger, and Strida. Today, 2016, there are more than a dozen brands being marketed to bicycle enthusiasts. Among them are Trinx and Atomic. I have seen quite a number of their bikes on the streets of Manila and I have no idea how they perform. So I'd like to ask for reader feedback. Do you own a Trink or Atomic folding bike? How is it? Does it give value for money? Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.
