After doing a bit of reading I have decided to get a folding bike for my vacations and since there are quite a few LBSs in the Toronto area that carry Dahon I have decided on one of these. I enjoy travelling through Central and South America so the bike should be able to handle the rough or cobblestone roads sometimes found in these areas. It also has to be light because I normally don't stay in one place very long and do not want to lug around an extra heavy suitcase. My girlfriend likes travelling through Europe so I would want something that could handle the steep hills sometimes found in France or Italy so I would also need something capable of dealing with that. I was looking at the Speed Pro but am unsure how the wheels would hold up to the rough or cobblestone roads. I'd also need something with a rack.
