Hi all, I am a newbie to this scene hence would appreciate any valuable advice
I'm looking for a foldie that I can bring onto public transport. I have tried 20 inch but it doesn't support my routes and the tyre was punctured. Hence looking into foldable mtb. But my qns now is should I get a normal steel frame or aluminium/alloy? The price is almost 3 times for the ~5kg difference :/ and I would prefer the bike to last long and not rust easily..
Appreciate any inputs from you experienced riders out there!

Hi yes I have replaced the tire but not too sure about the brand. Looking at 24 or 26 inch as I think it will be less tiring and support the rides better (: just wondering if those aircraft grade alloy frame are worth to get..
26 inch foldie is not allowed on public transport. of course aluminum is lighter hence the price difference. question is do u often fold the bike and take the public transport? if so then i dun think 26 inch foldie is suitable for u as the folding is bulkier. Straight point is: You have to choose between portablitiy to comfortablity. Btw, i you should look at your 20 inch tire brand, should get better brands like schwable and such. If u keep getting Pinch flats, then perhaps you should look at your rim tape.
