Jamie’s Stylish New Folding Bike

Jamie, the stylish NYC photographer behind one of my favorite photo blogs, From Me To You, recently got a new bike.

This is the Barcelona model of a Citizen Folding Bike. I am not familiar with the brand, but the $399 sale price is right. Check out those cream balloon tires and wicker basket! What a beauty! Both of them. :)

Folding bikes are an excellent choice for city-dwellers who have to carry their bikes into their apartments every night. As Jamie notes, this one fits in her tiny apartment.

    Dreamy! That price tag is amazing. I also like the Ciao from Dahon.

    Citizen Bike looks like their whole line is a grab from Dahon (that Barcelona looks JUST like my roommates Caio! which I role 16 miles this morning). If the construction’s half as good as Dahon, they’re a keeper :D

    I think folding bikes are a great idea! I’ve been reading about Bromptons for one of my sons who takes the railroad each day. Have fun with your new ride!

    Any word on how easily this one folds? I’ve owned one of their Miami models and folding it was a reach chore. As Ipstenu pointed out, Citizen’s bikes look a lot like Dahons. I had a Dahon Eco3, similar to the Miami, which was much, much easier to fold and it was mich ligher too.

    Bromptons are definitely the way to go though. They’re a bit more money, but totally worth it since they fold down much smaller and are light enough to carry around like luggage.

      Brompton is my current dream bike!

      • Will says:

        They’re a dream, indeed. My Brompton is now my second favorite bike, just behind a big, heavy, and extremely comfortable Batavus. If I’m ever in your neck of the woods with my Brompton you’re welcome to a test ride!

    Yet another gorgeous woman on a bike, where does LGRAB find them? Good luck on your bike Jamie.

    You should take a look at Montague folding bikes. They make performance folding road and mountain bikes that have a unique frame design without any breaks or hinges in the tubing. They rotate around the seat tube and are really solid.

    I have this bike in green and have had it for about two years. I prefer to ride this bike to any of my other bikes its so much fun and smooth… Plus, its just down right cute! Love it!

    Personally, I really like my Montague folding bike. It’s a little different from the one here – it has full size wheels, and I find I like the ride a lot better than with the small-wheeled folders.
