I am currently in the market for a folding bike. I think it would be the best solution simply because I live in an apartment and have limited space. I live in NYC and plan to the bike to commute to work (10 mile round trip), bike trails (central park and the like), long distance rides (Queens to Manhattan) and get around the city. I am willing to pay around 500 - 800 dollars. One of my biggest concerns is getting a folding bike that can take my weight. I won't lie, I have gotten quite overweight over the last few years (240) and am concern that most of the folding bikes won't be able to take my weight.
Are there any sturdy bikes out there that can handle my weight for the price I am looking for?
