hi all

i travel to work via bus and train everyday, was thinking of getting a foldable bike that can help me save the bus ride, which brand of foldable should i get that isn't too heavy/bulky to carry? I wouldn't need complicated gears etc just a simple ride will do haha

You need a really compact one with a carrying bag or the MRT staff won't let you on during peak periods. there is a guy in our condo that uses a Brompton to ride to and from MRT stations each day, birdy and carryme are also very compact.
problem is none of the Super compact ones are cheap
