And I will, as planned, get the new dahon after the holiday next summer, and after much thinking about just which model I want.
I briefly rode a 2 speed Carry-Me today. It was on a smooth-ish track, so I can't say what it's like on a poor road surface, but I like it :-)
It's even lighter than my Strida, & felt very stable. Shortly afterwards I rode a Mobiky Genius, & I didn't like that at all. It felt far less stable than the Carry-Me, & is very heavy in comparison. My wife rode them too, with similar impressions. It's interesting that however much one researches folders, it's crucial to actually ride them.
Carry-Me would be great for air travel too; easy to pack, & there's carriers front & back with the rear one capable of carrying a suitcase.
There's a BIG gap between the 2 gears, but I wouldn't consider the single speed version for my usage pattern.
I was hoping to try an A-bike, but none in sight.
Hope you enjoy your next bike :-)
