I normally hang out in Road forum and occasionally lurk in the single and Fixed forum but I have been thinking of getting a folding bike. Here is what my usage will be.
Once a year we take our boat over the Bahamas for a week. We ride around this small island in golf carts which is the main means of transportation. I would much rather tool around on a folding bike. So it will be used just as a means of transportation and messing around. Roads are okay but not great. The island is a little hilly so a geared bike might be better.
The other usage will be when I go to visit my parents in Florida one week a year. I would use it for a little excercise and recreational riding around their neighborhood. I am looking to get two of them so my kids could take a ride with me and not fight over who gets to use the bike. The island does have rental bikes but they are in bad shape and we have the room to bring the folding bikes with us on the boat so I would rather buy them and use them back in Florida also. I have only seen the Giant Halfway in person. They are a little pricey for the amount of usage they will get.(A few boat trips and a few weeks per year in Florida) I see that Dahon has a D7 which is a little cheaper. Any recommendations would be welcome.
