    Why foldable?
    they are expensive... IIRC a good one cost more than RM1k.
    If its just for exercise, get one which cost less than RM300..
    There's a Lerun bike shop in SS14 which you could check..

    Check out Rodalink in Taipan(same row at Standard Chartered Bank). They sell Dahon foldable bicycle. Entry level bike costs ~Rm800 right up till the top end which costs ~Rm3,000+.

    I saw 1 in Sunway Pyramid on Wednesday.. It's in one of the stalls located along the walkway between the new and old wing...very cool unit. (so is the price) Small, and use a knotted belt instead of chain and guess what..DISK brakes!!!

    You can try Joo Ngan Son at Damansara Utama (http://www.imcyclist.com/contact.html) They have a few selling between RM750 and RM850. 16" and 20" wheels, with Simano gearset. Comes with a bag.

    IIANM, the shop is owned by Ng Joo Ngan, the former National cyclist & coach, and run by his son, Edwin. The guys there are pretty friendly and offer great advise.

    Well, i doubt you'll be able to go that fast to utilise the disk brakes...
