Last summer I traveled to CA to visit friends and relatives and spent over $600 on rental cars. Never again.

So, BP readers, I need your folding bike recommendations.

Use: Train/Plane travel with multi-model commuting on either end. I'm interested in people who've used travel cases that convert to trailers--was it relatively easy to transition?

I'd like a bike that takes rear and front racks and can hold full sized panniers in case I want to do light touring.

Small fold/ease of carrying is important too.

Budget is somewhat flexible.

Thanks in advance.

Ride as many folders as you can and let the ride decide...you'll likely pick a BF
They're based in Eugene and offer tours of their factory.
