LiteRide anywhere in the city

We've featured a couple of folding bikes in the past, but this one is my new favorite. I'm a fan of the folding bike in concept, because it makes commuting to work or (for those of us still getting in shape) commuting halfway to work more possible. Folding bikes often sacrifice comfort and style for compact-design (e.g. Mobikey or A-Bike). On these funky wheels, you find yourself pedaling awkwardly, because the bikes themselves just don't "feel right."

The Lite Ride bike is a 20" wheeled aluminum alloy framed folding bike. It features a six speed Shimano indexed gear system, Prowheel crank and fabulous folding pedals. The bike can be adjusted to accomodate riders between 4' 9" tall to 6' 6" tall and up to 245 lbs. Weighing in at 24.6 lbs, Lite Bike is heavier than the 12lb A-bike, but the tradeoff for the smooth and familiar ride is well worth the extra pounds.

If you commute to work or want to start, but have qualms about needing to take public transportation home one-way or in case a snap thunderstorm catches you at rush hour, LiteRide is a wonderful investment.

$349.99 at goods-2-go.com.
