After viewing my local used options, I've decided to buy a new 20" folder. The goal for this bike is recreation, fitness, and portability. Which one of these do you suggest a new folding bike rider purchase?
Within budget and right now my first choices:
1) Downtube Nova. Buy it and put some money into a new saddle, chain guard (for pant protection purposes), and fenders.
2) Dahon Eco 6. Might need a new saddle and chain guard, fenders look ok for my needs.
Pushing my budget, but I can be convinced:
3) Dahon Speed 7- Really nice bike and maybe I only need the chain guard?
4) Downtube 9 or 9 SP - Still would needs fenders, chain guards, but I am not sure if I would need a suspension for my riding (mostly concrete city and/or bike path recreational).
Again, thanks for any help you guys/gals could provide.
