I'm 5'2", female.
I live in a 6 floor walk-up apartment
I'm in NYC - I will only be riding it at Central Park or the NYC Greenway for leisure and exercise. I won't be riding in traffic with cars since I'm too chicken.
With that said, does anyone have any recs for me? I came the folding bikes subsection because I figure they would be the lightest bike so I can carry it to my apartment.
So far, I have heard very good things about the Dahon Speed 7 or Vitesse D7HG, but I'm not sure if there are better recs out there. I'm not sure if these 2 bikes are too specialized or advanced for what I'm using it for or perhaps I need more?
I also don't want a 16 inch wheel because those look like baby wheels and just looks weird when I saw them on the streets. I"m also afraid it won't be that stable. I'm not very good on my bike, so I feel safer on something sturdier. Thanks for your help.
