The July issue of our sister publication, Aviation Consumer, features a blow-by-blow comparison of some of the best folding bikes for pilots we could find. See them in action in these five video reviews by Consumer's Jeff Van West.

Brompton Folding Bicycle

The super-compact bike was our Aviation Consumer top pick for a pilot's folding bicycle. More than just a stowable bike that rides well, the Brompton is a complete portable transportation solution.

Dahon and Breezer Folding Bikes

Dahon is the world leader in compact folding bikes. We tested two of them and think their Mariner gives the most folding-bike value and quality for the dollars spent. Breezer's Ziggy is quite similar and with a few more features.

Dynamic Sidekick High-Tech Folding Bike

With shaft drive and fancy brakes, this is the highest-tech folding bike we tested. It's a good value, but not without its drawbacks.

Bike Friday's Tikit Folding Bike

Bike Friday custom-builds excellent folding bikes in all shapes and sizes (even tandems). We tried their tricked-out Tikit and were generally impressed.

Xootr Folding Bicycle

Not the best choice for packing into an airplane, but a great bicycle that happens to fold.
