Thanks for your advice a few days ago concerning folding bikes... You actually might have convinced me to get a tikit, and if it is the case, I'll send you some pictures.
Basically I was thinking of getting a cheap and sensible Dahon Speed D7, just to dip my toes in the folding world. But I just sold my car and the extra cash on hand has me leaning to get the Tikit. I've actually wanted a Brompton for a while, but I thought that the Tikit is just about as good (folding isn't as neat and compact). Here, the Tikit would have the advantage of originality... I've seen a bunch of Brommies in Paris and in train stations... the smart people here are going multi-modal with gas a $7.50 a gallon.
So when I go to NYC for vacation in April, I'll give you a heads up as to which bike I got... I am thinking of going by NYCe Cycles or bFold since they are in Manhattan. I'll try to call them and reserve a large one...
