A lot of discussion around here seems to be towards folding bikes which are good for multimode commutes, packing into car trunks, or taking on aeroplanes; basically bikes made to be used in conjunction with other forms of transportation. However, some people just need to be able to fit their bikes in the coat closet and don't care very much about folded size or the bike not staying together.
Free from these requirements, folding bikes simply designed for storage seem to be lighter, cheaper, and more comfortable (by virtue of the more traditional geometries they often employ). Of these bikes, which are the best? Which offer the best performance? Which offer the best value for your money? Which are the best commuters/road/mountain/etc?
Dahon Espresso? Swift? Wally World? Bike Friday? Inquiring minds want to know.
