    Regarding the "Prompton" in NYC, I e-mailed the seller this morning and made it before the ad got deleted. I didn't get a response.

    That seller needs a lesson in basic marketing - rule #1 Show the customer the merchandise. Smartarse jokes will not substitute.

    That is the most horrible contraption I ever set eyes on. Who could have thought that was a good idea, let alone put money into manufacturing it? Jeeez - it's enough to destroy your faith in human nature and innate common sense.



    And I was embarrassed about riding on a strida lookalike? I obviously need to re-calibrate my ridiculousness meter.

    Ummm......, does this mean you're not going to bid on it and then fly over here to pick it up?

    You know, you really are a most perceptive man.



    No - I think I might just struggle with myself and resist the temptation. Of course, if I weaken, there will be another along soon enough - 2045 maybe, when I'm long dead - hopefully.

    Oh, and one more thing - I wanted to point out that the answer to your rhetorical question is in the Craigslist ad:

    "It was designed by an engineer in the aerospace industry in England that wanted a folding bike that didn't look like one (circa 1980's - early 90's)."

    I would have guessed Japanese origins, myself.

    That's a national disgrace.

    I must go and hang myself.
