Personally I would not buy a full size folder (26" or 28" wheels) as I think they only change shape when folded, they are not smaller. Others may have a good reason to do so.
If you ride a lot in snow or mud/sand a 20" may be small.
Do you want to take it on a crowded buss or train in rain? Small apartment? Carry it upstairs? For some weight is more important than fold.
Thanks for your reply...
Yes I am in UK. There are couple of hills i have to deal with... and I have short of space in my flat to keep a full size bike. I do not want to do touring at all. Its solely for going to work and sometimes have a ride with friends on weekends.
I chose 26"/24" because its hard to push pedals on hilly roads on small bikes. and I plan to use it all the time during winter or rainy seasons. I understand your point of they change shape when folded, but in my office if I keep a full blown bike in front of the door of my boss, either I will be kicked out or my bike. and I do not want to keep in parking lot cos there are EXPERT thieves around...
I would not need it to take on train, but sometimes may be in bus, but thats very rarely.....
Yes, I have walk up stairs for 3 floors because there is no lift
therefore even though weight is not a big deal for me but lighter is always nice..
Looking forward to hear further....
