Will be sure to report w pics since i understand that is the custom here
-- I think a lot of people just dont know folding bikes exist & would be really keen on them if they did, the people i have talked to about them the last few days have been quite interested but the local shops dont seem to carry them and at least a couple wouldnt be interested i'm afraid....you would not believe the fight i had to go thru to buy a "dirt bike" and the flack I keep getting for riding it, even after i explained that I needed something small enuf to carry upstairs in bad weather (ie not a long step-thru) & that I didnt feel safe on a 26" road bike being 5'2 & after some bad experiences on the bad pavement here....
ETA: the flak was from some (not all) the vendors when i was trying to find a rack....public response has been abt 50% "Get a real bike!" and "Cute, that looks handy!" when out at the local farmers mkt or getting coffee....
