    New kid

    I am brand new to the list. Nice to join all of you. I am a regular road biker living in NYC, but would be considered leisurely by anyone serious about riding especially for speed. I am turning 50 next month, so I am probably getting slower rather than faster even if I ride regularly. On the other hand I plan to do 60 miles this Saturday in the NYC Century bike ride, which I try to do every year.
    I have 2 issues I am interested in input on. First, anyone have a sense whether I would be foolish to buy a Citizen folding bike for $179 given how cheap that seems. It is an internet offer. I need a folding bike for occasional bike commuting and the like.
    Second, I have very wide feet and have not found bike shoes that fit me. Anyone else like me out there who can point me to a store in the NY area where they have a wide shoe in stock that I can try on. I am leery about buying a wide shoe via internet.
    Thanks in advance for any input.

    Welcome to the forums.

    Going to the Folding bike section is a good start.

    As for your feet, go to the Northeast regional discussion section and ask about good bike shops in your area as I'd be very leary of buying shoes of the net if you have wide feet.
