Folders are great utilitybikes. I like to have a small rack in the front. That way I can use a backpac that is hanging on the bars, resting on the small rack. When you leave the bike you carry the backpack on your back.

I like baskets, they can be fixed to the bike or remowable.

Remember small wheels are stronger than big wheels. Also they carry the weight low, that is a plus.

They also work great with trailers.

Many folders has got a weight limit, find out the limit for your bike. If you are heavy or carrying a lot best to use a trailer for heavy stuff.

There are some bomb proof vintage folders around. Maybe get one of those?
