I was wondering about this for a while. I noticed that there are very few folders being ridden and seen even around transit hubs. Yet I see a increase of cheap, department store bikes and trashy ones cluttering up the light rail trains and the racks on buses. The major folding bike makers all report a large increase in sales over the past few years. Where are the folders being hidden. I see very few-a Dahon here and there, two Bike Fridays, one Brompton and one Moulton-in the last ten years. Can anyone comment about this rather unscientific observation?
