Killing time and enjoying the last of the daylight, I rode my wife's Mini around the house in the yard. Except, for not being able, to not pop a wheelie going up a steep section, I was having fun. Then I hit a small hole, and I mean small- seven years of mowing the grass there and I didn't even know there was a hole there. The Mini's 16" front tire dipped in and stopped me like I had thrown out an anchor. Hurt my wrists, but no real damage.
My wife loves the Mini as is and I was going to make some mods to expand the cockpit for me. But-this is the first 16" tire bike I have riden since I was 5. I absolutely need a small folder: but now I am a little more than nervous of riding in low light, at night, grassy areas, etc... I do not think of this as a Mini problem- just 16" wheels.
The DT VIIIH fold is not quite small enough for my needs, so what are my options for a really small folder other than a Mini?
