Damn...Russ beat me to it!

Long term dream/goal. Get a Brommie and an Amtrak pass... I have also toyed with the idea of flying places, I have the ability to pass ride (ride for free when seats are available) on certain airlines. But have been trying to figure out how to get a Brommie and the B-Pod to come in under 50#. For some reason the B-pod is listed as weighing in at 23# and I am sure the Brompton I want will hit right around the 30# mark.

Might have to go with a NWT, but I like the quick, compact fold of the Brommie for the time being.

Webshots is bailing out, if you find any of my posts with corrupt picture files and want to see them corrected please let me know. :(

Which one would you rather have under your butt at 30mph?"

This is exactly the reason I aspire to buy a folding bike.
