So you've got the high-end Brompton and another little one along the way? Looking forward to the birth announcement. ;-)

Anyone want to start taking bets as to the identity of Mulleady's new high-end 20" folder?

Yeah, but other than these, how do we really know that Moultons are good for long distance rides?

Hmmmm????

If we're going high-end, we ought to discuss folding recumbents. Here are some I know about currently on the market:

I can comment at length on recumbent trikes in general, and the GT3 in detail. But to me trikes - folding or not - are simply nothing like folding bikes at all.
