    Should I buy a folding bike?

    I live in a first floor flat and my current bike is getting really rusty outside. I don't want to carry a bike up and down stairs all the time, so would a folding bike be a good choice? Or are they a pain to actually get around on?

    i have never used one but from what i have seen they appear to be very user friendly and a very good solution for someone who lives in a multi level dwelling. However once unfolded they are not the "coolest" bike you will see, generally they have small tires and look somewhat clownish.  But if practicality supercedes appearance i'd say go for it
