    Deciding between a folder~~

    I'm currently looking to buy a folder, but I'm having trouble deciding between price and functionality. I'm a college student, looking for a folder to ride both on campus as well as on the road. I've been scouring ebay and came across vintage looking folders like Peugeot and Bugatti, which look mighty nice, but I'm unsure about purchasing these without being able to try them first. Does anyone have any reviews on these bikes?

    I've also been looking at the Downtube Nova and the Origami Crane, both beautiful bikes, but a bit more $$$$$ then I'm willing to spend . I'm still willing to consider these options though.

    Ty craigslist. You may find local bargains that you can try before you pay.

    For example http://sfbay.craigslist.org/eby/bik/3890412527.html

    There is this one, a Bugatti, that I've been looking at on eBay for a while. I'm just not sure if this is a reasonable price for this bike.

    And does anyone have ant experience with the Cayne brand?

    Thanks
