I've never owned a folder before. I'm 5ft 9in, 145lbs and thinking of getting either the Nova or front suspension model. I'm on a bit of a budget, and don't want to spend any more than $400 (excluding shipping). I live in NYC and will use it daily, mostly on paved roads and grassy, somewhat bumpy areas. I've never ridden a bike without suspension before, so I honestly don't know what I'll be in for. I want to get a Downtube because of their low price and reputation for good customer service. With them not being particularly well-established in relation to other companies (Dahon, etc.) I'm a bit apprehensive. Should I go for it? Does anyone have anything positive/negative to say about their Downtube? Thanks for any input.
