Whenever I travel by air, I miss having a bike around. For most destinations, I feel like having a bike would really improve my travel experience, whether I'm just exploring the area with short hops, or going on longer tours. I would like the bike to be ready for domestic and international use. I would also like it to break down small enough to avoid outrageous baggage fees, but also comfortably fit my 6'2" frame. If I were a few inches shorter, I think a good, mid-range folder would be a no-brainer for me. But I am at a height where I'm pushing the limits of comfort on a folder, so I am looking closely at the Trucker Deluxe. Cost is also a factor. I could buy a discounted TD frame, assemble it with parts from my Cross Check, then sell my CC frame to defray some of the cost. I also have a rack, panniers, and frame pack that would transfer right over to the TD. With this setup, just one bike could serve as my at-home bike, but also as my travel companion. A folder seems more like a dedicated travel bike, so that would mean the expense of two bikes instead of one. Plus, a folder that would comfortably accommodate my height seems to put me in the more expensive Bike Friday category. So, yes, leaning towards a Trucker Deluxe, but looking for input from others who might have useful info that I haven't thought of.
