I'm considering buying a Dahon Mu P24 to use for light touring and longer rides in hilly terrain. Also considering the Dahon Speed TR '08 (24 speed). Potential advantages of the Mu P24 over the Speed TR are more compact packing (due to handlebars), lighter frame, and lower price. Disadvantages might be the comfort of an aluminum frame on longer rides and strength for carrying panniers with some weight (note: I don't intend on doing hard touring on this). Any thoughts/opinions would be much appreciated!
