I'm lucky to have space at work for a full size bike. But I would totally ride a folder all the way, if that was the only way I could bike to work.
Thanks all for the feedback. I will post on the folding forum as well. I am going to go check out the Dahons this weekend. The BFs are nice, but a tad on the expensive side. Comparable to the bromptons at the lower end I suppose...I am excited about getting on the bike more and commuting to work. Don't see a lot of that in Austin, at least up north, but it's picking up for sure. I envy some of the other posters here that live in cities with a lot more bike friendly infrastructure..
