Citizen folding bikes 20 inch

I just got a new Citizen folding bicycle ($300). It's very solid and nice to ride. I have 2 other folding bicycles including a DAHON($400) and a GTM ($100). The Citizen seems to be the best made. I even got the airfree tires. It only seem a little harder to pedal with the airfree tires so they are making progress but they are still harder on bumps.

What folding 20 inch bike do you like the best?

I liked my Euromini. It was inexpensive and fun to ride but nothing can replace my Brompton ��

What model Citizen do you have? I have a Citizen Miami and a Brompton 6spd,plus several road bikes.I bought the Citizen after my Dahon was stolen for about 200 and was very surprised by it's rather good ride .No it's not a Brompton but I consider it a good machine for the money I spent.
As for 20" wheels I rather like the Brompton's 16 inch ones better and what they mean to the fold.

I have the MIAMI Citizen bike. Very firm solid folding connectors so it never seems unstable when riding. The air free Muffin tires as so smart. I hope all vehicles from bicycles to cars have this option soon. I see riders everyday with flat tires. In fact I saw one this morning riding back from our community garden on my bike.

,there is much the miami has to offer .If you remove the fenders and the rear rack you reduce the weight by almost three pounds and with high pressure tires it gets much more zippy and fun to ride.I also
think it has one of the best 20" folds for wheeling around when shopping
