Before making a decision on a folder with large wheels check out the Downtube 9FS. We have two of them and ride them daily. They have 16 inch wheels a full suspension and ride like a full size bike. I am 6' tall 215 lbs and drag a trailer behind mine for quick trips from the marina to grocery store.The bikes feature aluminum
frames are relatively light weight at 26 pounds or so. To my mind this is one of the only bikes with smaller wheels that doesn't look like a clown bike when I am on it and it's good looking to all by itself IMHO, as a matter of fact we get a ton of compliments on the bikes from the locals. The only downside is I have had to replace a couple of the machine screws because rust was forming on the OEM screws.
