Folding bikes for a bigger rider
I need advice on which folders will fit my longish arms and legs - I have a 35" cycling inseam, and take a 58-60 cm seat tube on a road bike. My torso isn't super long - I would use about a 57-58 top tube on a road bike.
I have an almost new Swift (ordered 'large size') that I love but feels cramped, even after trying an adjustable 130 mm stem and Trekking handlebars for longer reach. I'm about ready to sell the bike but want to be sure I can find a better fit in another folder first so. I'd prefer a bike that has a 'stretched out' road bike feel.
