    Come onto the forum to buy a bike.
    I love cycling and through it have lost nearly 2 stone in 3 months - am down to under 13 stone for the first time since I was at school!
    I love mountain biking and road biking and manage about 100 miles a week through commuting and cycling with wife and friends.
    Am after a folding bike after being told I couldn't put my full size on the train recently which is why I am on the site.
    Can't bear to buy a brompton - something to do with being like everyone else so looking for a Mezzo D9 or D10
    Not many years before retirement and God willing more cycling if I carry on my fitness and health.
    Greetings to all!

    Hello and welcome to the forum.Well done with weight loss.
    If you're looking for a folder you could also consider a Montague or a Airnimal, not as compact a fold as Brompton or other folders but 24" wheels. Some Terns & Dahons have 20" against the 16" on the Mezzo, but you can pick them up quite cheap now.
    As for MTB wheels I prefer 26" old skool stuff. I do believe wheel size has little to do with it ride being more dependent on tyres and frame geometry.
