For those that are short of storage space in the home or that want that to make the commute to work a bit more practical, second hand folding bikes can be a sensible solution. Folding bikes are all about functionality. As they can be folded up, it is much easier to travel with them on public transport, take a bike on holiday or just store more easily at home.
Commuting is the most obvious use for second hand folding bikes, as they are so practical. They are allowed on virtually all types of public transport and when you do get to work they can be stored in a corner or even under a desk without taking up too much space. Of course, for those who live in flats they can be a Godsend too.
Other than the fact that they do actually fold away, these types of bikes are easily identifiable because of the smaller size of the wheels on a folding bike, which are much smaller than you would find on conventional bikes. The smaller size of the wheels makes it easier to fold the machine away and make it compact. There is one standard size for used folding bikes but they come with a long and adjustable seat post and steering tube.
The way that a bike folds is a key consideration. Most want the bike to be folded away into the smallest package possible. It is helpful if the gears and chain fold away to the inside to keep the potentially dirty parts of the bike away to keep your hands and clothes clean. Many folding bikes come with carrying bags which help to keep the bike clean. Some can also be wheeled when folded, which is often easier and more practical than actually carrying the folding bike around.
To that end, it's worth looking at the weight of a folding bike. Alloy frames are the best to ensure that the second hand folding bike can be easily carried. Folding bikes with hub gears require less maintenance and the gears are enclosed inside the wheel meaning that your hands don't get dirty. Folding bikes with other features, such as luggage racks and mudguards can be useful to protect clothes from dirt and for safely carrying bags on the bike.
