I'm not looking to go long distance. Just something to throw in my car and ride for fun wherever for a few blocks. maybe even riding to the metro with it.
I was looking at this 12" Zport for $129
then there's a 16" Zport for $149
the 12" is ONE speed vs. 3-speed for the 16".
my car is small and a convertible, so no trunk space. i had 20" folding bike (Dahon clone) in the back seat and i didn't like how big and bulky it was (sold it). taking this on the metro or bus is probably out of the question....once or twice maybe but during Wash DC rush hour everyday, forget it.
for daily commuting to the metro, i think something that would fit in a rolling case/cheap suitcase would be the solution right? 12 incher then?
