I'm wondering if anyone who has some experience with Bike Friday travel bikes can comment on the practical differences in ride/handling between the New World Tourist & Pocket Llama?
I don't really need the larger tire clearance of the PL at the moment, but having it does give me flexibility should I want to run Big Apples down the road. However, the BB of the PL is higher than the NWT and it has a different steering geometry. If all else was equal I'd take the bike with more tire clearance, but I don't want to give up on handling for that feature as it isn't critical to me.
I'll be using the bike primarily for loaded touring on paved roads. I don't see myself doing any dirt road touring or off road riding with the bike.
