Longevity of folding mechanisms?
Thinking about picking up a folder for commuting duty. I like the form factor of mini-velos, but the capacity to fold would be beneficial in my multi-modal commute. Though not planning on folding it every time, but what would be the life cycle if one were forced to fold 3-4 times a day, 5 days a week?
I'd be pushing the weight limits of most models, as I'm roughly 230 lbs. Brands local to me are Giant, KHS, and Sun. And if you know of any others that have dealers within 50 miles of zip code 74066, I'd consider those as well.
