To be honest, i dont know why i chose Raleigh. Its a 'local' company, or it used to be. It wont be carried far, but it does need to be of low wieght because it will go in a caravan. It will be folded a few times a week when its put in the car to go out somewhere to ride it. I'm not botherd if it fits a in a suitcase, but there is a limited about of space for it to go in the caravan, and only having a small car with other bits in the boot, it doesnt need to be too small, but not too big. I'm not too botherd if it can go fast, i like to cruise down roads rather then fly down them. And a Derailleur rather then a gear hub. I've been looking about in different bike shops and i saw a Model Bioptomer i might have spelt that wrong.
