Folding Biker

Hello fellow bikers! I am a man of belief, belief in bikes! I believe biking is the future, particularly folding bikes, sold my car for a Dahon Mu Uno in 2010 and never looked back. Best thing I ever did, changed my diet, friends, finances, changed my whole life. I've tried many Dahons since 2010 because they are the most economical and I needed to really get the hang of this, wear, repair, customization, but I've always secretly wanted a Brompton, just couldn't get myself to splurge for one yet, and they have so many models I wouldn't know where to start, but that is the next step, so any thoughts on starting out, models, opinions, experiences, would be awesome to hear. I also offer my expertise in Dahons to all as well.

Biking in DC, NYC, Boston, and hopefully one day Amsterdam and Norway.

All the best!

Howdy and welcome aboard! Best way to figure out which Brompton will work for you is to test ride as many models as you can.
I have a 2013 with s bars and 6 speed, works for me. I've been to DC, Boston and Amsterdam but didn't have a bike with me at the time.
I'm always riding my folder in NYC though
