I'm about to start a new job working at a University. I'll have to park a few blocks from the building I'll be working in; for most people this would be a problem, but I've always wanted an excuse for riding a bike to work. I want a folder for obvious reasons.
Cost is a big factor (with this job, I'm trading money for benefits). I'd like to keep it under $300, but since I will be using it every day, I also want it to be a comfortable well-made bike.
I've been looking at several Dahons, a Downtube Nova, and even watching a few vintage bikes on ebay. Anybody care to point me in a direction?
