Regarding a folding bike (disclaimer: I don't own one and haven't tried these), I'd strongly suggest using 700c wheels or maybe 26" wheels. You really don't want to bring a bike on vacation, ruin a tire, and be unable to find a replacement. Perhaps this isn't such a big deal if you are sticking close to the big cities but even then.... Anyway, I'd suggest looking at the Ritchey Break Away, http://www.ritcheylogic.com, or something with S&S couplings like a Co-Motion, http://www.sandsmachine.com/. Both seem to fold up fairly small and you can get a hardshell case, if you want to fly on an airline. If you've got the bucks, titanium won't get chipped paint. :)
