Hi everybody, my first post here. I switched to recumbents a couple years ago, and love them, but I've always been fascinated with folders, so I'm going to get me one. I'd like to hear some opinions about my particular predicament.
I expect to use the folder for 10-20 mile day rides in very hilly areas, and would like a little luggage capacity. From a purely practical standpoint, something like an Mu P24 with a rear rack would suffice. But I like the Speed TR with the dual racks, fenders, and the dynamo front hub. Why? Um, because it looks awesome! I've always had an affinity for full-zoot touring bikes, even though I don't tour. So whaddya think? Get the lightest one that fits my needs, or suck up the extra weight and grab the one I'll stare at all the time?
