I am considering the purchase of a folder and am open to any suggestions. It would be taken on board an aircraft 5 or 6 times a month, so ease of folding I'd think would be a priority. I ride around 400 miles a month and enjoy longer rides. I am not a commuter, and ride only for enjoyment and health. If it makes any difference, I'm about 6'1" and weigh in at 170 lbs. Once a year I would plan to load it up for a 7 or 8 day tour. It seems there are so many options from which to choose, it is a bit daunting. I've read good reports on the swift folder but am not so sure how well it folds. Brompton seems a good choice as well, but I'm not so sure how it would be on any ride of some distance. I appreciate any advice.
