...and bought a nice univega mixte instead of a folder. It was just the right size, right price (well, kinda), and right color, so I had to jump on the deal! It's making my way to me from Ohio Pics soon when I get the bike, hopefully by next week. I guess this means no brommie though (at least, not immediately).
On to the folder talk--has anyone tried to put a downtube mini under the seat of a bus/train? I know that the brommie fits, but since I'm not getting one (yet...but one day, yes, one day...) I wanna know how well the downtube will stand up to crowded buses. If it doesn't do well with that I might need to seriously reevaluate the "omgwtfbbq hills!!!!" part of my commute and get a strida knockoff or carryme instead.
