I am a lifelong bike tourer contemplating buying a folding bike for

gearing (c) supports panniers - I carry all of my stuff, including
camping gear (d) riding experience (as close as possible to a

Looking for recommendations. I've looked at Brompton, but it doesn;t
seem to be able to carry much and the gearing isn't really
appropriate for touring. I have a triple chain ring and probably
would want to get down to the low 20's for low gears.

yes, bike fridays. we have taken ours all over the world and love them
still. we use the fat tire versions for cobblestones etc and find them
fine for longer rides too.
