Giordano Folding Bike Review

Giordano folding bike

Giordano City Cruiser folding bike

So I’ve owned a few folding bikes, not to mention a few road bikes, fix geared bikes, and so on. I guess you could say I’m into bicycles. So after traveling around the states for sometime (I‘m from Holland) I decided I needed to get a portable folding bike for my recreation as well as getting around. After looking over a few different bikes I decided to get the Giordano folding bike. This bike is made by Kent International bike company and is similar to a more expensive Dahon Vector. This bike is also goes by the name Giordano City Cruiser folding bike.

The frame is made out of aluminum and is pretty light. I believe in total it weights in at 25 pounds. I’m a little bigger than a lot of guys (like most Dutch guys) so I needed a bike that could carry the extra weight and my Giordano seems to have no problem with that. The bike features 6 Speed Shiman Revo Shifter, which are nice but if your going up inclines you will have to push yourself a little more. I don’t think you’ll find a bike with more than 6 gears at this price. Also the breaks are very responsive.

I’ve read on a few reviews online that this company is hard to reach and their support isn’t that great. I personally haven’t experienced anything, because I haven’t had any problems with the bike and didn’t have to call them.

So the Giordano folding bike is a good bike with a reasonable price. Its made pretty well and in my opinion would be a good choice for a folding bike unless you felt like spending a little extra money for a bike with more gears and a few extra features.
