    Newbie spreadsheet

    Has someone pulled info from all the folding bike vendors and put it in a spreadsheet?

    I am thinking this could be a third bike..
    The bike to be used when jumping on the subway.
    The bike to be taken on vacation.
    There have been several times when having a bike would make carrying the camera gear just a little easier.

    I am thinking this would be a good idea and I could keep it for many many years. So even if the Mt. Bike gets most of the miles...it will be good for many many year.

    But........
    I am 265# and 6,1. But I am trying to lose the weight.

    I see some bikes have weight limits. Fbike is 225#; I am 40# over plus 15# of camera equipment. Is that limit something I need to worry about?


    Based on what I can tell, there are only three issues with BikeFriday..
    1. I can not ride then buy.
    2. There is a wait. Like more than a month wait.
    2. Cost....For a bike that I don't plan on putting thousands of miles on....$$$$ is just a little stiff. (Maybe if I love it I would put more miles on it, but this is bike #3 ......)

    these Swift versions are made in steel , often built when order comes in ,
    so say what you weigh/ want to carry, and the material picks can be adjusted to suit..

    note the front rack option..
