I can't say enough glowing things about my Brompton if folding is your
priority (and there are myriad resources out there for touring with them if
that's what you're looking to do; start with pathlesspedaled.com). It's the
bike I ride the most because it's my commuter and my city bike. I thought
when I bought it it'd be a niche thing but it's so comfortable and
versatile, I take it everywhere and can do nearly everything on it. Rides
fire roads just fine too, as long as they aren't too loose. Fits in the
overhead bin of a 777. I'm 6' tall and have the H bars, which are the most
upright option. I'd give one to every college kid instead of a laptop.
