    It used to be Al's Bicycles in Norman, Oklahoma. They had one of the largest selections of folders (Dahon, Tern, Brompton & Raleigh) between the Mississippi and the Rockies. And you could test ride any of them. When we (my wife and I - see the shameless plug?) sold the store at the end of 2015, the new owners had absolutely NO interest in folders.

    ThorUSA.com is pretty much in a class by itself. And Thorsten is peerless in the folding bike world. He has been the greatest single influence on my career as a bicycle dealer.

    Perennial Cycle in Minneapolis, MN and PortaPedal in Tempe, AZ are both fantastic shops. I was amazed by the service I received from both shops. They know their folders!
