Going to buy a touring bike. Question: would Dahon Mu be a good choice or should I go with Speed TR?
I like the simplicity of Mu, i.e. 8 gears, no derailer sticking out, so less chances for transportation damage, and that it comes with lights, fenders, and a rear rack for the same price as TR without any accessories.
My concerns are around the frame strength and the gears - not sure if 30”-89” will be enough for a longer New Zealand trip.
Any advice, especially from Dahon Mu users much appreciated.
