Folding Bike Newb Considering Origami Cricket
Hello, short time lurker here looking to get back on the saddle. I was interested in getting my first folder for commuting. I saw the Origami Cricket and it seemed to have a great deal of features for the price. I read some of the reviews, but I was unclear on whether the handlebar height was adjustable. Also, I was holding back just because they didn't have silver available in the Cricket 6 or 7. I guess I could live with black, but I've had a black car and that thing was a magnet for scratches. Would 6 or 7 speeds make a huge difference as I am strapped for cash? I was also a bit bummed that a carrying bag did not come with the bicycle.
I will be going through some hills mostly on pavement. Part of my path will also include passing by a lake which has a tendency to flood the paths a little when it rains hard. If it rains really hard, the ducks start swimming across the road. A portion of the commute does end up in an industrial area with annoying amounts of gravel, potholes and railroad tracks. I am 5' 11' 250lbs.
I hope I have provided all relevant information. Thanks in advance for any advice. Happy 4th to the Americans.
