    20 Speed Brompton

    The creator of this machine said he invested over $5,000 bucks including the bike itself. Nice

    Why buy 10 cheap bikes when one nice one will last longer!

    Looks nice, but I doubt he/she can go fast on that brommie. Ouch on that derailleur.

    That's a VERY expensive folding bike. couldn't he have just bought a more expensive folder that's designed for racing instead?? would probably be cheaper

    Wondering how difficult these mods are. Brakes: just a parts replacement. Same with wheels, and cranks. For the cassette you need to open bend the rear. I thinks that's why it is not possible with the titanium bits. I would be fine with a 2-speed setup anyway. The "aber hallo" stem seems to have some purpose, maybe provides a neater fold? The brake levers are a bit projecting.

    Virtuoso effort. Bravo. Who needs 20 speeds?
    2000 Montague CX, I do not recommend it, but still ride it.
    Strida 3, I recommend it for rides < 10mi wo steep hills.
    2006 Rowbike 720 Sport, I recommend it as an exercise bike.
    1996 Birdy, Recommend.
    Wieleder CARiBIKE (folding), decent frame.
