I live in Mexico City and been searching around for a folding bike. It seems that the ONLY two models available here are these ones:
20" x 1 1/8 - 7 Speed (Shimano)
Price: $255 USD
(Alluminnium frame. No fenders, no bell, no rack)
Dahon Eco 2
20" x 1.5 - 6 Speed (shimano)
Price: $290 USD
(It has Fenders, bell, sttel rack and reflectants. I don't know what the frame is made of)
Fenders and all the rest are not important for me. I intend to use the bike for riding in parks, and ocassionally want to be able to carry it with me on public transportation and drive a little bit in the city. One of my main concerns is durability (the other is not having too much trouble with spare parts).
Benotto is a mexican brand (founded by Italian immigrants) that makes very good bikes. Although I think this is their first folding model, it looks quite though, and resistant. The Dahon looks slimmer, but I don't know much about the brand and would gladly appreciate some opinions and recommendations.
Thanks in advance.
