Hi, so I'm trying to find my first folder, I'm a college student and I live in colorado, so my main concerns were price, the weight, and how well it would handle the hills. Colorado is a lot of hills... mountians too but, I'm not gonna be on there with this bike. I need it primarily to get to and from work and school. I was looking a folder so that I could take it on the bus when the racks are full. (I don't want to be stranded at the bus stop late at night) Eventually as I build up my endurance, I may try to stop using the bus. Except in the winter. I'm not sure about riding in the snow.
Anyways long story aside, I've been doing a lot of looking around, and I was settled on the downtube nova after looking through a lot of threads here. I think its the right size and price, But I just don't know how well it'll handle the hills, and if its not good with them, what would be.
I'm a girl, not too strong, 5'3", 125lbs.
Thanks a bundle for your help and such ;u;
