I'm new to this. I have plans to spend some time in New England and Toronto this summer and looking for recommendations on folding bikes. If possible, I'd like to get one for under $200; the bikes I've found in this price range are mostly the Downtube brand on eBay. Most of the Dahons are over $300, yes? As for folded size, this is not a huge factor for me. I don't need to store this at work, just something that will fit behind the seat in my Toyota Tacoma. So I can give up a little portability for quality and affordability. The other thing I'm looking for is comfort since I suffer from fibromyalgia (muscle pain) and my butt, thighs and hips get sore easily. I don't intend to do any rough or city riding, mostly path and leisure.
Any guidance on bikes to consider and best places to shop online would be greatly appreciated. I'd love to make biking a bigger part of my life.
