Hi Garry, I am hoping to get a folding bike to help me lose weight and get fitter. The problem is that years ago I damaged my spine, this has left me lots of pain when walking, cycling would I think be a lot better for me as my spine will not be straight, which is better for me.
Next problem is my weight - 17 stone, slowly going down, which rules out bikes like the A bike, also don't want to spend a lot at in case it doesn't work out for me, any suggestions?
Many thanks, Malcolm.

Hi Malcolm,

I think the most suitable folding bike for you is a folding recumbent bike but it may be quite expensive. :roll:

Best regards,

Hi, my name is Andy, I have had a Brompton for just over two months, think it is the best thing since sliced bread, really enjoying mine, have modified a small trailer to tow for my Jack Russell dog, together we have covered about 350 miles.

I'm Martin and I've just joined, thanks for accepting me.

First Brompton was in 1993, a red 3 speed, bought from Castle Cycles in Newark, Notts. Sadly they are no longer there.

Since then I have bought 11 Bromies in total with the latest a fetching grey lightweight (Ti) H model with reduced gearing 6 speeds. I'm liking the 2017 combined gear/brake levers, as well as the new front headlamp. Great. Most of the previous Bromies have been sold on, though I do have a much updated 2006 model which even has a titanium seatpost!

I've even tried a Nano Brompton, purchased from some really helpful folks at their Leamington Spa workshops. However it wasn't really my scene and It has gone. Electric bikes are heavy (think motor and battery) and I prefer, at 75, to pedal myself along. I do have an electric Gazelle which is brilliant for a supermarket shop.
