Also camp lite 11 like similar as well.
i think i roughly get it.Gears: Shimano Tiagra 10 vs OEM 3
Wheel Size: 20 vs 14
Brakes: Mechanical Disc vs Rim
Weight: one is abt 4kg more
There's nothing someone can tell you what is suitable for you except to try them out yourself and if you are willing to pay for the difference.
Mind asking what makes you decided to upgrade to Birdy rohloff？Eh don't mind me advert here.. I'd rather let go my bikes here for fellow edmwers than go caurohell..
I got 2 foldies - Travelo FSS Black Edition to let go.
Main bike specs: 451 tyres, shimano deore groupset, please google "travelo fss black edition for full specs"
They are well used but also well maintained because Travelo offers free lifetime basic servicing which we utilized and have even paid for premium servicing.
We are throwing in below upgrades on BOTH BIKES for as part of the sales.
1. Ergon GP3 Biokork handlebars (one pair easily cost 80 bucks if brand new)
2. Single stand upgraded to double kickstand (litepro, $35 bucks if brand new)
3. Brakepads recently changed too
One bike has upgraded shimano deore XT M8040 pedals, retails brand new about $150. This will cost slightly more expensive than the bike with stock pedal, if you don't want upgraded pedals, I can remove and add in stock.
Both bikes also have "Spurcycle bells on them (black), letting go for $80 each if interested." Otherwise I will remove them before selling.
Thing is both bikes have vinyl stickers on them, I'm not willing to remove them myself till deal's closed or you can just peel off after heating with a hairdryer lah, won't leave marks.
Can test ride at my location.
1. Bike with stock pedals is 780 friendship price
2. Bike with shimano pedals is 850
Selling because we're upgrading to Birdy rohloff, sales is not urgent. Can go check caurosell out, mine is the most upgraded and yet cheapest.
Brompton give you a better ride. And alot customisation.Speaking from experience … bike if too light won’t give you good riding comfort… only good for you to carry around …. But then who buy bike to carry around ?
I bought 10.6kg Crius Master D rode for two weeks find the weight balance not to my liking, on rough PCN paths you will experience alot flex, if too fast might experience bike ‘flying’….
Sold off and bought a Mobot Royale
you should try out trifold bikes like 3sixty, Pikes, etc…. They are more within your budget under $1k…
