If you are a longtime RVer or live full time in your RV, getting enough exercise can be a challenge. Gym memberships are expensive and exercise equipment most likely will not fit in your RV. Get a folding bicycle and not only get exercise, but lower your “in town” transportation costs. Folding bikes are getting more advanced and affordable than ever and these top five brands will save space in your RV—you can fit most of them into an RV closet or under a bed.
Citizen Bikes have been selling for more than ten years and the stylish Miami bike can be folded up into a 35x14x23.5 inch portable size—it even has a carrying bag for only $29 extra. The Citizen Bikes fold down without the need for tools and the Miami version comes in eight fun colors, like Orange and Sour Apple. Citizen Bikes come shipped from the company 99% already assembled.
This folding bike costs just about as much as a regular bike ($140) and folds up to about 30x17x26 inches.The seat and handlebars adjust for any height and has both front and rear hand brakes. This bike also has a handy luggage rack on the back and a convenient thumb shifter.
The Columba folding bikes can be folded down within seconds and some of them, including the LW20S, fit larger frames and taller adults. The Columba bikes feature Shimano shifters and they also have a removable front handle stem and foldable pedals.
The Schwinn Loop can be folded down to 30x32x11 inches and only weighs 33 lb. The bike has a built-in carrier on the back and comes with a heavy duty nylon carrying storage bag and city tires. This folding bike is a little more pricey than the other bikes, but is backed by the Schwinn name and quality.
Do you want to use your folding bike in the mountains instead of the street? The X90 by Montague claims to be the highest performance mountain bike on the market and still folds down to 36x28x12 inches. It is much more expensive, but for outdoor lovers, it might be worth it. Montague also sells less expensive off-road folding bikes like the X50.
