    Taipei bicycle show 2007 pictures of a folding roadie with a huge 68t chainring

    http://translate.google.com/translat...%3Den%26sa%3DG

    I was doing a search for large chainrings and I ran into these photos of a new folding road bike that uses a really large 68T chainring. It looks like I am not the only one thinking of using a large chainring.

    Nice looking bike.

    Oh I like that! But the fact that it takes two people to fold it has to be bad.
    Maybe one could enlist the help of a passer-by?

    Yes, if you want the teeny wheels and don't want to pedal like a demon, you gotta get a bigger chainring!

    Or a teeny rear sprocket... 12t? 11t?

    If you fit a 68 on a Brompton you might want to consider putting a tyre on it too...

    LOL - funny translations, but clever anyway. How would we have managed before automatic translations? With fewer laughs maybe?
