    I think we have already decided that we like this bike http://www.bikeforums.net/showthread...ht=tilt+folder but I would think it is made more as a commuter and shopper than a tourer. You would have to decide what to do with the luggage, maybe a Dahon frontrack, not sure if it would mess up the fold.

    What is the wheel base?

    More of a 'stylish urban bike', no (what they're selling it as, after all)? Innovative ideas but if I were looking for that kind of bike I'd prefer something more elegant.It looks too chunky. Re. touring: Rear rack looks less stable than others and the lights look like trouble (rear unprotected, front not repositionable).

    considering it has a belt drive, front light with generator, love the chaing guard. probably heavy as a tank, but the design makes it look like it will fit into any chic setting. as for touring - should forget that - with all the special parts, you will be stuck if anything mechanical fails on the road. you want a bike with parts that can be readily replaced.

    I just discovered the btwin and love the design. Does anybody know if they have distribution in the USA or if they can ship to USA?
