Hi, and happy I found this forum...just excellent info! Experienced rider here on mt. and road bikes, but I find myself needing a folder for travel via ferry, car, and airlines...love how small these folders pack!
I have no experience with a folder, but did test ride a Dahon D7 at Performance Bike....very nice bike. I'm trying to stay under the $350-$400. mark and am looking online at Citizen Metro and Downtube (which one for my size?). My concern is weight limits as I usually haul some camera gear/misc stuff in my backpack close to 25lbs...so combine that with my 215 and its getting up there. Non issue?
Another concern is my long arms and needing a longer cockpit area. Comments and suggestions much appreciated.
