    Small Wheel Addiction

    I don't know what it is about small wheels, but I can't leave them be .

    I've owned expensive freeride bikes, CX bikes, nice steel mtbs, but the idea of being able to fold my bike into a small package just makes me happy.

    After a fling with a Tikit and then a Brompton, I'm hoping to settle in with a NWT that is set to be delivered soon.

    Small wheels are fun and addicting.

    I was going to say that small wheels are a recent addiction for me, but that is technically not true, only folders are a new addiction.

    Some of my 'bents have 20" wheels and my velomobile also has 20".

    Of course where they really shine is on a folder. Nimble crisp handling and quick acceleration.
