Anyone here has experience riding on Abike ?

http://www.abike-shop.com/


I know it is not for long distance travelling but kinda like it because of the weight and compact. More like a toy to ride at park for 20mins.

Please share your experience. Thanks.

I wonder if it's stable enough? I miss riding my bike.

ok for smooth surface..i guess yes.
it can only load up to 85 kgs (max)

I found another review online.

But you'll need some practice on it. If you are really interested, go for it. But do note, due to the smaller wheels, your gyro effect, which gives you stability will be compromised heavily. So do wear some protection on your first ride. :) Doesn't come cheap too right?

with that amount of price, i could buy a decent mountain bike already.
most suitable for a park ride only...definitely not for long distance riding.

Hi

It looks uncomfortable. Wheels are too small -any bump on the road and you'll have problems. It shouldnt be too expensive though. I saw some at HomeFix for approx $140 last year. Not sure if they still carry any stock. It feels all plasticky and cheap when I sat on it.

There are better foldies around. I like the Stridas. You might want to look into that. Link here:

Its a better compromise.

Hope this helps.

I got one of those A-bike. They are fun to ride. Not for serious riding though. But the tyre pressure has to be correct all the time. Otherwise not rideable at all.

thanks. Strida definately look more solid and comfortable.
i think it is much bigger and more heavier. Not sure can store 2 unit at the car boot of a family sedan car.

besides of HomeFix (not sure which one still carry stock now), any bike store check it out...?
