Car racks may become a thing of the past, thanks to the improving quality of folding bicycles.
Forget those strange-looking contraptions with tiny rubber tires.
攜車架可能將永遠成為過去式! 好在現今的折疊車已逐一提升品質。

Today’s folding bikes are big, sturdy and, best of all, cool looking. We tested a new folding
mountain bike by Swissbike that performed admirably.
現今的折疊車是能兼具堅固耐用與夠酷造型的自行車,
這是我們對的SWISSBIKE摺疊登山車進行實測後的結論。

The TX model looks like a bonafide mountain bike with front shocks, front disc brakes, an 18-inch frame and 26-inch knobby tires.

TX配備的前叉、前碟煞、18吋車架與26吋輪徑規格讓它看起來就像一般登山車。


Within 30 seconds or so, we had the bike folded to a size of 36 inches by 28 inches.
大約能在30秒內完成摺疊,而實際摺疊後的尺寸為36吋×28吋。

We are also happy to report that the bike did not fold up during an outdoor test ride.
我們也樂於告訴各位,TX在實際騎乘的過程中折疊卡榫不會有鬆脫的堪慮。

The bike, weighing 30 pounds, was agile and rugged.
全車30磅重、騎乘輕快、堅固耐用,

Our only critique: The rear rubber brakes lose friction when they get wet and the pedals are too small.
我們唯一的批評就是後輪潮濕時會影響V夾煞車磨擦力,還有踏板不夠大。

您可以自行更換較大的踏板或是摺疊踏板。
同時依據個人經驗,除非選擇改裝碟煞,
一般傳統V夾橡膠煞車在輪胎潮濕時多少會影響到煞車力道。
