I am thinking of getting a bike for my commute. It's going to be a folding one as my area has a high theft rate and I'd rather not spend lots of money only to have it gone when I come out. =/ I'm looking to spend around the $400-700ish range.
I live in the San Francisco area (hilly areas) and my commute will be around 2-6 miles (sometimes from Daly City to San Francisco, other times across the city).
What are some recommended models for me? I'm a 5'1, 95 lb female and prefer a lightweight model so it will not be too difficult to carry around.
Also, I am considering either 20" or 26" for wheelsize. The 20" sounds more appealing as I will be bringing it with me into classrooms. However as I have stated, I will be riding in the SF area so the 26" might be a better idea...
So any suggestions?
Thanks in advance! ^^
Edit: I'm not totally set on a Dahon, open to other brands too ^^
Edit: Thanks for the help, everyone! ^^ I got a secondhand Vitesse d7 now =D
