This is an open-ended question. I'm new to folder bikes, and I have no experience with them. Professional reviews for these bikes are few and far between. I'm also unable to ride one before I make a purchase. So I'm calling you, the owners, to express your viewpoints. Honestly, I'm looking into a Brompton, but I'm open to suggestions. I'm a 6 ft male, 175 lbs.
What I'm looking for:
1) Something Fairly light-weight and small
2) Commuter bike to be carried on buses, cars, and planes.
3) General Use (going to and from work) with some casual riding on bike trails and parks.
4) Would like it to fix under my desk at work.
So if you had 800 to 1000 dollars (not sure about how many euros that is)... what bike would you get? and why?
