You are driving yourself crazy, lol. Seriously, you need to stop looking at options. Get a Dahon. An 8 speed. Get if from Thor. If you buy thru Amazon you will need to likely spend money at a shop to get the bike in proper riding condition. If you cruise through the threads here, you will see Thor really stands behind his bikes. If you keep reading and shopping, you will go insane and never actually start riding!
You can't go wrong with the Dahon - you can always resell it later on and recoup most of your money if you find you want something nicer. But summer will be over before you get a bike if you keep on shopping and reading.....I get it....just do it.
