That's merely a matter of how much force is applied... of course then it will most likely remain an unfolder.

What's your take on the Travoy? Does it handle well with the 60lbs suggested limit?

Yes. I would suggest using something other than the base utility bag, which tends to come loose and drag on the wheels from time to time. But I've put hundreds of miles on my Travoy, usually connected to my Bike Friday. Today was the first trial of the minivelo as mule. No problem until the unrelated chain incident.

Here's a pic of it on the friday:

NYC counts as "the wild," right?"

love the little dahon but i gotta admit, i've been looking at some pretty sexy bromptons lately...tempted by the smaller folded size but not sure how i'd like the 16-in wheels after finally getting used to 20s. that, and saving up a month's rent...

NYCEWHEELS on the upper eastside has free Brompton tours on Saturdays.
You can take the tour as a test drive for Bromptons to see if you like them.
I have a 20in. wheeled folder as well as a B'ton. The ride is not very different.
They are kinda pricey. Last time I was at NYCE about a month ago, they had
a used titanium model 3 speed for sale. The sales guy said it was $1,500, but
I think I saw a tag on the seat saying $1,000. By the way I don't have any
connection with this shop, as a matter of fact I didn't like the way I was treated
the first time I was there; how dare them not offer me any discount! :D

I'm always struck by the lack of Airnimals in threads like these. Why is this? Is it because of their cost or is it unavailability?

Likely both ! I don't recall ever seeing one.
Nice looking bikes however.

Do you own one ?

At the moment I've two. A Chameleon and a new Joey, this one.

http://www.spacycles.co.uk/products....=m1b41s19p2745

I'm selling the Joey as really it's a serious touring machine and age and ill-health mean I can't tour any more. It was a real bargain but I shouldn't have bought it and it's only done around sixty miles.

Very nice ! Good components and gearing.

At 65 , I need to add a small inner chainring to the Bike Friday to have the gearing required for climbing here
in the Rocky Mountains.

Due to it's low gearing, my Specialized XC Comp with slicks is my favorite climbing bike. Once properly
set up, the Bike Friday should be a good climber also.

The Bike Friday's seem the best alternative. Tom

Brilliant, I like to see ingenuity. Necessity is most definitely the mother of invention.

I often state; get the bike to fit your car, not a car to fit your bike(s)
Nice work on the moter bike.

I much prefer riding to driving .... with maximum possible fun being the objective :thumb:
Maximum possible speed on any of these bikes can only lead to trouble !

Traveling with a folding bike or in this case a homebuilt folding kayak only adds to the fun ...
