a folding bike for touring?

Hi,
Do you guys think folding bicycle is sturdy, speedy, and comfy enough for a 4 month offroad and on road touring around Australia? I'm considering Dahon Zero-G or Matrix or any of Montague's. I want to know your opinions.
Thank you.
Ruben

I wouldn't hesitate to use my Bike Friday for an extended tour. It's a Pocket Gnu model built up for loaded touring and trail riding.

I'm certain that many other folders are also up to the task.

You should read, "The handsomest man in Cuba" by an Australian lady, Lynette Chiang. She told the story of her travel all over Cuba with her Bike Friday.

The question has been posted in Touring forum as well. Please continue this discussion there.
