Kent Aluminum Folding Bike Buyers Review (January 2021)
Kent Aluminum Folding Bike
- ✔ Lightweight Aluminum Frame & Fork
- ✔ 7 Speed Shimano Gearing System
- ✔ Shimano Shifters
- ✔ Easy To Fold Away
The Kent Aluminum 7-Speed folding bike can fly under the radar, not many retailers have it available however it’s a solid little folding bike. As folding bikes come, it’s got everything you need and more. The Aluminum has an adjustable seat stem that allows both tall and shorter riders to get an optimum position setup. While the rear cargo pannier rack covers the requirement for easy storage transportation.
Reports that the 7 speed gearing system rubs on the frame seem to be incorrect, or at least not wide spread. We have found several international reviews where this issue was outright denied. Perhaps it was an issue with a particular order.
The 16 inch wheels give you enough support and comfort when you stick to urban areas but we wouldn’t recommend testing this bike on anything you’d determine as off road. Perhaps it would be fine with a dirt path, but anything more severe and we think it might struggle.
The wheels are guarded with front and rear fenders so you can expect a spray free experience when on a wet road.
Not much else to say for the Kent Aluminum, it’s a sold choice. A good value budget bike, with all the features you need to enjoy your commute or recreational rides.
