Thank you for your input...it does help...10 years is a long time !
How is it on compacted gravel or stone dust ?
My preferred bike path along the St-Lawrence Seaway is like that...so that info would be very appreciated if you experienced on that kind of surface.
Thanks again !

We have just the ones you are looking at from Canadian Tire. We have used them for a few of years both at home and camping and they work great for us. We bought ours on Kijiji for $200. for both. They fold quite compact and fit in our motorhome storage, We put a basket on the front of one and a milk crate on the luggage rack of the other.

We also have had our Dahons for 10 years, 6 speed, bought at CW and they had them all put together, weigh only about 27 pounds each. We pull a tracker and put them in there. As far as riding on different surfaces, rode them on the mulch trails at Peninsula SP in Wisconsin with no problem , on packed dirt roads elsewhere and even the beach at Daytona. Probably the longest I ride have rode is ten miles. We have been very pleased with them. Good luck with what you find !

Bike performance off road has to with the tread pattern and the width of the tire, in addition to the diameter of the wheel. The smaller the wheel the more likely it is to side slide and be more influenced by potholes etc.

My wife had a mountain bike with slick tires and it was terrible off road, changed to knobby tires and it was completely different handling.

PM me if you have any questions.

Thanks ev1 for your experiences and comments.
I just ordered through Amazon a 20" 7 speed Tekcoup folding bike.
Best thing is, it's built here in BC, Canada...not a Chinese product like a lot I searched.
Should receive it sometimes in the next week.

We have a hybrid trailer, so installing a bike rack was not an option. Folding bikes seem to be a good approach as we could carry them in the back of the truck. We have Downdraft bikes with 12 speeds(?) and like them very much.
