Dear folding friends,
This is going to be a long one sorry. But writing helps me think aswell as giving you a full picture of the help I need.
Ok I have an important question people of a folding persuasion can understand. I would really apprciate your help and patience as I am self-admittedly over-think a subject.
outlined below are what i like to ride and my budget.
What I like to ride…..
When it comes to bikes I believe there has to be some sort of compromise, especially with a folding bike. Therefore I have outlined firstly the important question firstly what type of riding do I want.
Recently I went mountain biking with some friends and I loved it. Additionally I love touring which I have only had one big ride (Bejing to Llhasa) so there are many things I still have to learn about it as I mainly encountered decent roads and would find alternative travel if surfaces was bad.
My price range…
Around £500 (can go more but ideally not ), so this counts out the airnimal rhino/dahon xp and im abit worried amount small wheels for the thing I’ve been doing relatively comfortably and safely on my friends rockhopper.. not to mention fast.
So Should I sell my BELOVED Brrompton for a Montague Paratrooper? Should I quit complaining and just get off and walk where it gets to rugged? (as i plan to leave to go touring indefinatly in one year i can only have one bike )
I would go to the mountain bike or touring forum but from experience we ‘the folders’ are really the nicest people in this whole place, if not the planet.
ps. pictures to help
