    Brompton + train tour

    "When man first set woman on two wheels with a pair of pedals, did he know, I wonder, that he had rent the veil of the harem in twain? A woman on a bicycle has all the world before her where to choose; she can go where she will, no man hindering." The Typewriter Girl, 1899.

    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.

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