so from reading up here it seems like the bromptons and downtube mini's are the most compact folders. with the brompton having a little more of an edge over the mini. the strida's seems to fold pretty nicely in a different way. but if i'm looking for a bike with more than one gear that folders really small the downtube mini and brompton seem like the way to go. Since this is still new to me i just wanted to see if i was missing anything?
Also i noticed how there are the bompton clones, merc and flamingo. are these easy to track down in the USA? i saw the merc ebay store but they don't have bikes right now.
