CAMP ROYALE – BEST alternative to Brompton folding bicycle
Recently, I purchased a Camp Royale, which is a 6-speed foldable bicycle. As I am a home tutor, it was essential for me to have a bike so that I can travel to work and run my errands. Before I got the bicycle, I went through a lot of reviews and got opinions from people around me. Some suggested Bromptons but it was above my budget.
Then I saw a friend’s Instagram post, he had bought a foldable bicycle recently. I found out he actually bought a CAMP bicycle. Hence, I went down to Mobot to take a look at their bicycles. They have a wide range of bikes but I specifically wanted a foldable bike so that I can bring it around easily.
Amongst all the bikes, the Camp Royale caught my eye. When I tested it, it was smooth to ride, and the gear shifts were very clean. The bike could be folded to a compact size. Furthermore, it was quite light. The bike costs $1399, which was still within my budget.
I purchased it on the spot and the bike was delivered to my house within 5 days. Even better, the bike was already assembled.
It’s been 3 months since I purchased the folding bike and I’m quite happy with it. Within this time span, I got to realize its strength. The bike is made of Chrome alloy steel, which is strong and long lasting. Besides the foldable bike is only 13.1kg and lightweight. This makes it easy for me to carry it around.
I especially love being able to fold the bike. I often travel from one place to another for classes and the bike’s compact size allows me to store the bike without it taking up significant space.
A feature that I grew to love while using it was the handle attached at the back. This helps me push it around when the bike is folded and is both convenient and useful. It has made my life much easier as I didn’t have to carry the bike around.
It also comes with a hidden air pump which I can use anytime.
Another feature that I grew to love was that the seat can be adjusted to a great extent. Even when my 8 years old brother wants to ride it, I can easily adjust the seat for him. Even the pedals are foldable.
In a nutshell, I’m quite happy with my purchase and would recommend Mobot to people who are looking for a foldable bike.
