A Folding Full-Size Mountain Bike? Yes, Please!


welcome back guys from Maine the
temperatures in the next five days doesn’t even reach 80 degrees so blue
skies and finally comfortable weather for me by the way it’s actually even a
little more pronounced as far as I know Arby’s in Portland than I let on to and
maybe I was a little naive a couple years ago but they actually do have a
law banning RVs anywhere to park overnight in the Portland City area that
even included private property for a time there until they started to
deprioritize enforcing the hundred dollar fine and towing RVs right off of
people’s property or public property or anything I don’t want to get into it it
don’t matter Portland is just one tiny little
insignificant city in the state of Maine and I intend to enjoy the summer
elsewhere where where it’s a little more inviting to RVs speaking of excitement
and adventures my folding bicycle has arrived so this is an Amazon purchase
it’s a folding compact bike there is some assembly required
so I’m gonna open this guy up and see how detailed it is and how hard it’s
gonna be to put together we’re gonna take a break in the unboxing
and setup phase here because if you saw my last video you probably realized at
the same time they sent me a white bike not the blue bike that I ordered and
this comes in four different colors I don’t know why they sent me the white
bike it’s not horrible it’s got some blue in it but it’s the white bike and I
very rarely have problems with Amazon this is a huge purchase and investment
really so I’m gonna call them and see what they want to do hey I got a problem
with an order I just received through Amazon they shipped me the wrong colored
bicycle yeah it’s Eric they had four colors available and only one of those
was Amazon Prime that was the solid blue with some white accents I received a
solid white bike with black accents and like two or three blue lines are you can
can you like tell me are you out of the one that I was supposed to get and
that’s why you they thought I wouldn’t want a white one instead okay well no I
appreciate your honesty you telling me that they’re out of the blue one when
they sold me a blue one that’s important because it’s not worth my time to wait
around another week for Anna send me the white one again so I mean so I mean I
appreciate your honesty can you cut me a deal on this white one and just give me
a discount on it then instead so I can get back on the road so I just got off
the phone with Amazon and made it right guys I mean it is tough
traveling because you know I don’t have an extra week and I kind of tried to
express that well they went ahead and knocked off a hundred and forty dollars
off this purchase price credit that back to my account not not in a gift card but
back on my credit card my debit card within five days so I mean I basically
got the bread the bike half off and it’s I don’t care what color it is at that
price it’s definitely worth it so this all worked out and that’s why I don’t
like stress out it’s just it wasn’t what I ordered and it wouldn’t do me any good
to wait around they don’t have the blue one in stock so they would just do the
same thing if I return this and reordered the blue one it send me
another white one so I’ll go and take a hundred and hundred forty dollars off
the price and put this bike together alright guys we got the white version of
the camp folding bike all put together everything tighten down the way I’d like
it everything is adjustable here so I adjusted the handlebar the way I wanted
it in all the positions and brakes and shifters the way I wanted it the seat is
the only part I’m not excited about because I would really want it down all
the way down to here but you can see the adjustable shock here is blocking it
that’s unfortunate but I may just get a grinder and just grind off an inch of
this so I can get the seat down to where I really want it comfortably it’s still
workable but my legs are almost fully extended on the pedal to the bottom
right now so yeah that’s the bike I’ll take off on my first little test drive
here actually leave those puppies alone it’s actually a nice smooth comfortable
ride and I’m gonna be able to get fresh air and exercise and mobility with a
bike that is secure in my garage with the 21 speeds I’ll be able to get up
certain steep hills but I like it’s comfortable and compact I do have some
rubbing I think it’s the front brake the front caliper brake right here is
rubbing on the outside so it’s not centered in there quite right I can’t
tell if these are just a moment do a little bit of research otherwise I might
be able to put a washer and there’s something to get the that pad away from
it it’s it’s touching a little bit and a rub and while I’m riding but otherwise
yeah it’s a 26 inch folding mountain bike and now I will attempt to
demonstrate how it folds up there’s a total of four things you can do to
compact this thing down the first is take the seat out then the pedal is
actually fold in and we can take the handlebar off and lay that aside and
then I’ve got one more clamp right here that will fold the bike in half so see
holds it pass and this can go like that I’ll show you how thin it is it says 13
inches wide at this point with the pedals folded in and the arm bar well
the bar doesn’t have to go there it can actually go fat or something now we’re
looking at 13 inches width pretty awesome pretty neat so it doesn’t need
to be stored outside it can go right into my garage there just like that weatherproof so pretty
cool right having the bike kind of takes a little bit of the pain of having to
sell the motorcycle to fix the brakes but I actually got a call from Greeley’s
today they got all the parts the OEM Chevy drums shoes and the turn switch
they want me to drop the RV off at tomorrow morning 7:30 in the morning
checks now waiting in the lobby and hopefully we will have finally solved
this epic brake problem on the Chevy chassis and be ready for new adventures
in Maine I do love Maine that’s time to be here and I really again appreciate
Renee and Monique letting me stay here on the property while I get some things
taken care of but yeah the bike will be fun to ride
around Jackson I’ll see in a couple days thanks for watching guys you
