Physis™ 3D Handlepost
The new benchmark
Five patented technologies and unique manufacturing technology add up to the strongest, stiffest folding handlepost available. The Physis uses a special manufacturing process called 3D forging, which forms the post from a single piece of aluminum, eliminating all welds.
If your space is limited and you'd rather not awkwardly affix a big, clunky bike to one of your walls, look no further than Tern's Link C8, a roughly 28-pounder that folds into a compact size, so you can discreetly tuck it away.
For something even more budget-friendly, Keoshgerian recommends Tern’s entry-level models like this C8.
