A second opinion would be to look in the for sale section there is a nice Bike Friday NWT there made for travel touring and is gear appropriately without the need for any mechanical modification except maybe a second ring and FD with shifter.
Thoughts are that you are not sure what you want. The flo does not fold and you appear to be unsure of wanting a standard bike or a recumbent. I would encourage you to identify the features/functions that you want and prioritize them to determine what you are willing to give up.
