    That's what I was going to recommend.

    As far as regular bikes go, I'd recommended something where you are upright so you aren't putting as much weight on your hands.

    Sticky means stuck to the top of the list of threads. It was sticky when it started. It is longer.

    Yan is right. You need to make sure you'd be allowed to use a folding bike.

    Maybe you'd like MBB bike where you can use your upper body if you want to (you can also not use it; it's pretty much up to you...)

    Well done, sir!

    Yes, get a tandem for you and your wife. And then also find random people to take on the tandem who wouldn't otherwise ride. :D

    I'm not disagreeing that trail is more important. My point was that wheel base is more important than wheel size (assuming everything else stays the same).

    Wheelsize isn't usually as important as wheel base. Longer bikes feel more stable.

    I agree with habilis.

    If you have to pass through a lot of narrow doorways, barriers, then a trike can be a pain in the @$$. But for most riding, the trike isn't much wider than your shoulders,...

    Agree with above. I'd wait until at least a year and depending, maybe longer.

    If you want a really large range, you can add a front derailleur to a rear IGH (quite common in recumbents, for example).

    And while I run derailleur systems myself, you're comparing apples to...

    I've got both a 3 speed IGH folding bike (16" wheels) and a 6 speed folding bike (20" wheels). The gearing is closer on the 6 speed, but the range is pretty much identical on the two bikes.

    One issue to watch out for with studded pedals is that they have 0 float (i.e., you won't be able to turn your foot at all). This won't bother some people and will be horrible for others...
