Well, I talked about it, thought about it and talked about is somemore- to the point that people were begging me to buy one already or shut the heck up. I did it...last night I bought a folding bike. I got a Dahon Boardwalk D6. I have a two mile commute in NYC in an area where it would be stolen outside, and a full size bike is not allowed inside- so this was a perfect compromize. I took it for a spin last night and already realize I need to practice navigating the traffic and get a little braver before I try trekking all over the place. I'm very excited to start biking to work!
