    cheapest foldable bike...

    Gas is on the rise again, traffic sucks and people are rude. I live under 3 miles from the train and work less the 1 mile from a stop on the line. I thought about designating a car as a Station car (rip the radio out) or buy a folding bike and riding to the train but will need a foldable bike because the rules of the Long Island Rail Road.

    Right now I am weighing my options. What is a cheap foldable bike?

    If you're looking for the absolute cheapest foldie you can find, I would do a search on eBay. There are some very cheap bikes to be had, as long as you remember that you get what you pay for. Awhile back, I was in the market for a relatively inexpensive foldie (thinking I could throw one in the trunk of the car and have it on a road trip) when I came across Citizen Bike. They appear to be pretty dependable and versatile, but I can't say for certain as I've never actually rode one. I'm sure there are some folks on this forum who can give you better advice. Dahon and Bikes Friday make some really nice whips, but they can be quite pricey.

    would probably not last very long

    Maybe look on ebay for something used.
    read KNOBBY MEATS or be sadly ignorant of the mediocrity that is allowed to exist in the interwebs

    Start with a Dahon Boardwalk single speed and upgrade components as needed.

    I prefer a full sized bike for speed. Lock it up at the station. Are you using it again when you get to Manhattan?
