    Searching for a folder

    I am considering buying a folding bikes. I previously owned 2 Citizens 20" folder, but included them with the sale of a travel trailer. This time I want to go with a better quality folder with the 26" wheels. I want to try and keep the price below $500.00. I am looking for a bike that rides upright like a cruiser. I am 63 and normally cruise the neighborhoods 5 to 10 miles three times a week, average speed from 8 to 12 mph. 90% of my riding is on pavement and the other hard packed paths.

    Anyone have any suggestons about a bike I should consider?

    Thanks
    Terry

    Montague Bikes are full sized ones with 26" wheels, and options to upgrade as needed. The DX model is under 500 dollars:

    For a relative few dollars more, the CX has a few more features ("....Our special gel saddle and suspension seat post combined with an adjustable stem to position your handlebars, lets you sit upright comfortably as you enjoy travelling through the town or pedaling the back roads...") that adds comfort and style to this bike. I can tell you from my own experience that adding parts can run up the price over time. Buying it with these accessories and components already installed do pay for itself in the long run.:
