while researching a bike with low step over for my wife I started getting interested in folding bikes for myself. i have read quite a few of the threads, and know that many commute etc, but it seems that people have them for utility reasons. does anyone simply ride them because they like the way they ride and feel and look? i don't actually need a bike with little wheels but kinda want one...maybe a smooth hound. are they really limiting in terms of performance etc? i currently ride a standard geared bike and a fg. and i'd want to ride about 30 miles a day on it for my commute. they just seem fun and kinda mellow.
