    Need more information as to your intended use/needs. Are you going to be touring or commuting? Do you have a budget or is the sky the limit? Do you prefer internal gears, a derailer or the simplicity of a single speed?

    I would start here: http://www.bikeforums.net/showthread...ead-this-FIRST

    I bought my first folder before I knew about this forum. At least you made the right FIRST decision.

    I would highly recommend Bike Friday. What ever your needs their sales staff will ensure that you get the right fit and bike for your needs. We, my wife and I, each brought different models this past summer. Neither of have been so satisfied with a bike as we are with these. She brought a Tikit with a carbon fibre belt drive and I New World Tourist. Another huge bonus is that they are made in the USA. We are Canadian so when I can't buy what I need here at home supporting the economy south of us in the ends helps us up north. I will grant that you can get cheaper folders so all I can do is recommend based on my satisfaction.

    Based on the info you provided; I've come to the
    conclusion that a Citizen Tokyo is what you need.
    Just kidding As mentioned, you have to give
    more info - uses, budget, etc. And have a look at
    the buyer's guide sticky.

    It would help if you specified your plans and limits for the bike. That said, I have several folding bikes and the Bike Friday is by far the best of mine, for any purpose. It is also the most expensive, by far.
