Finaly, I bought a Folding bike! Bought on the Dec 7, 2008. Can't wait to test it out during this coming Bike Tour. It's best for touring because it is a chromoly with 20" wheel & rear rack. Weigh approximately 11.8kg. So, it is on the heavy side. What the heck! It's for touring! The only modification that I've made (at the moment) is changing the chainring from 53T to 39T. So it's ready for the hill. And it took me 30~50sec to fold it.
