Doesn't Breezer, Ritchey and Dahon have full size steel 26 inch tire folding bikes using S&S couplers?
The Schwinn-Montague BiFrame weighs 32.5 pounds, and the chainring extends below seat tube/down tube junction, so the ground clearance is limited by the chainring clearance, not the frame clearance. Chainring clearance is 7 inches.
I've been riding mine for fifteen years and don't believe the comment that the ride is noodly is typical. The only way this bike could be noodly is if the latching concentric seat tubes mechanism had somehow loosened.
Breakaway frames using S&S couplers are great, but they all take a while to break down and put back together.
