It’s the time of your life and every second of it should be enjoyed. But things don’t always pan out as you think they will.
Mom and Dad couldn’t get you a car. That’s fine – loads of students go the eco-friendly way and ride their bikes around. You’ll definitely have great legs come Spring Break! But the person you’re sharing a room with brought their whole house to college so you don’t have space to store your bike.

20” LIGHTWEIGHT ALUMINIUM CHEAP FOLDING BIKE
Nothing beats living near the sea. There is nothing better than waking up every morning to the gulls bleating their song of dawn, or the waves gently crashing on the shore in the distance. It is a feeling that is almost impossible to describe, and many of us don’t realise how lucky we are to live so close to a natural phenomenon. Many people spend thousands to come to the coasts every year and we have access to it 24 hours, 7 days a week.
However, a disadvantage of living near the ocean is the fact that some of your possessions may not last as long as they should. Salty air has a nasty way of ruining steel alloyed materials and can cause rust very quickly. This leads to you having to constantly replace the things that undergo that sort of damage.
Throw away your anti-rust kits because there is a solution to at least one of your problems. The Vilano Lightweight Aluminium folding bike is specifically designed for folks living along the coast and near the beach. This bad boy is rust resistant, meaning that salty air won’t be able to penetrate this material for quite a few years.
This bicycle is not limited to those people living near the ocean. Oh no! If you’re a city slicker and love visiting the beach on a regular occasion, fold this bicycle up within a matter of seconds and pop it in a carrier bag. It’s lightweight, easy to carry, and will ensure that you have a smooth ride wherever you go.
BEST CHOICE 20” FOLDING BICYCLE
So the Amazon guy has just left your house and you can’t wait to open the box you’ve just received. You’re already busy tearing the cardboard exterior and popping the bubble wrap before he put his truck into first gear. You absolutely can’t wait for that bike ride with your friend that’s taking place this afternoon. He’ll be so impressed with your new bike. But when you throw the contents out of its cage you realise with horror that your product hasn’t been assembled yet.
Frantically running around for a screwdriver, you find out you actually don’t own one. The manual has gone missing from its box and there are more screws on your carpet than actual carpet. Despondent, you sit amidst all the extra parts and pieces lying around, and you wish that you ordered the Best Choice 20” Folding Bicycle.
Of course you do! Best Choice is the obvious best choice for your biking needs, and the best part is that you don’t have to assemble it at all. That’s right! Throw away those ideas of buying a screwdriver because you don’t need one. Just unfold it, hop on, and show your friend how absolutely cool you are with your new bike.
When you’ve done your fair share of trail cycling for the day (which by the way will be a breeze as this baby can tackle any terrain), just fold it back up and put it in storage until the next time you use it!
What is the best place to buy a folding bicycle?
Definitely Amazon! I have mentioned this a couple of time before too and i am gonna say this again. Amazon is ( in my view ) the best place. Simply because of the lowest price offered and the quality of products provided by the sellers on Amazon are top notch. Plus, the after sales service is also excellent by most of the sellers. So i’d recommend Amazon any day for the getting the top rated cheap folding bikes.
