Getting on either DT after the Brommie with these tires made them feel lethargic.

The Brommie is like a Jag XKE.

The Brompton is definitely nicer than the ones I had but still has the so-so brakes. Nothing still touches its fold. Mini is close but if I had to fit a bike in a suitcase with no disassembly the Brommie/Merc is still the best choice.

Best ride quality of the bunch was the VIIIH, then Mini and then the Brompton.
All good to know, once again, thank you for taking the time to share...
