Hi, I have been looking into getting a folding bike for an impending trip I'm taking and hopefully for any future trips. While it seemed kind of silly at first to solve a problem (charges for bringing my full-size bike) with a solution that would cost more than the initial fix, I realize a good folding bike will be a worthwhile investment.
After a lot of research, I have basically decided on a swift. I love everything about them but the stupid brand name (xootr?) and the ugly blue color, but I can always paint it.
I would just like to get some second opinions on the Swift because there is no where near where I could test ride one. I am curious what the Swift owners out there think. How does yours ride? Have you ever taken it on a plane? Would you like to sell it to me? When would you like to sell it to me? etc.
