How small does it need to be? How far do you plan on carrying it? What's the terrain like (smooth, bumpy, flat, hilly)? How big are you?
The gekko is rather heavy and big isn't it? If you're willing to get a bike that heavy and big then you're better off with a Dahon Boardwalk, but if you're really only going to be riding 1-2 miles and you need a small bike to carry around then you're probably better off with something much smaller and less substantial like a Xootr scooter or an A-bike. There's also the Ez-Pak folding bike from Sidewinder which is small, light, and cheap. However, I'm not sure about the quality (although Sidewinder's other bikes seem to have a pretty good reputation).
