Suggestions for a Good Folder
I've been looking at folders for travel options, and my requirements are fairly simple-
Can fit on airplanes, cars, buses, and within suitcases/rucksacks so it can be brought anywhere.
Has to have high bars and seat (I'm 6'0 but ride with a seat/bar height for someone 6'2)
Must have equivalent gearing to a typical bike (ie to make up for the tiny wheels)
-By the way, single speed or fixed would be a plus
It has to accomodate lights (one front one rear) and a small tool kit.
I don't care about cargo capacity, all i need is my rucksack for clothes/food/etc. It also doesn't need fenders, variable gears (fixed or single would be fine provided I could choose the ratio).
What's a cheap (relatively) bike that fits those requirments? Bike Fridays look very nice but I can spend nowhere near $1200 on a bicycle. Is there a used market for these things that isn't outrageous?
