    What folding bike for a younger adult female?

    My Daughter likes cycling, but wants to be able to lock the bike in her Ford Focus Sedan. She lives in Chicago, so hills are non-existent. She is athletic, so performance is a priority.

    What lighter folding bike should she look at?

    When I ride my bike I feel free and happy and strong. I'm liberated from the usual nonsense of day to day life. Solid, dependable, silent, my bike is my horse, my fighter jet, my island, my friend. Together we will conquer that hill and thereafter the world.

    Is this a surprise gift or can you actually take her around to shops to test ride? If you can take her to shops to test ride there are a couple in Chicago that sell folding bikes. Rapid Transit in Wicker Park is the one most often mentioned, but Boulevard Bikes and a few others sell some too.

    If it's a surprise gift, then we'll need to know your budget.

    p.s. I wish my dad was buying me a new bike.

    The Focus has a decent sized trunk, any 20" folder should fit.
