    Smallwheeler.... I'm not sure if that's what Jack is referreing to. NYCEWheels has been doing these tours for a few years in addition to (I believe) Steve's Brommie Yummie rides.

    I recalled watching this video last summer which was posted on YouTube a couple years back:

    Group photo of my Pocket Llama with it`s friends (one Crosscheck, one Litespeed Unicoi) when I met up with two other members on the mtbr commuter board for a ride in New Hampshire.

    Llama and pilot taking a short break on the trail, same ride.

    Two Mariners that my wife and I met the next week on the carriage trails at Acadia NP. The Llama wasn`t on that ride- we had a rented tandem.

    Braithwait, that`s gorgeous- both the bike and the scenery
    Is it always green there, or is that seasonal?

    Our favorite bench, at the southern end of the Monterey Bay trail in Pacific Grove, California. The peanuts are for the local squirrels, they are very friendly and eat from your hand. The water is for us. This bench is a memorial to one of the 9/11 victims. There are always flowers and sometimes a letter from the family. It is located under q tree at the center of this picture http://goo.gl/maps/1kAJx , facing the rocks and the ocean. this is a ground level view of that location http://goo.gl/maps/8lYdD .

    This photo was sent to me by an Origami owner. Seems to be a good camping bike.

    A couple of photos taken on my recent ride in the Malvern hills.

    Stopped to top up my water bottle at Evendine spring. The water here was particularly refreshing.

    Think your reading it wrong. He means leading a tour of people around on brompton.

    My Birdy on the Metra (Chicago and suburbs commuter train) this morning.

    (Sorry for the crappy photo... it was taken with my phone while the train was moving!)

    OK, I took a handful of pics in Chicago this morning before work. All pics were taken with my phone, so please excuse the poor quality. I tried my best to snap some artistic shots.

    I like what you've done with the Birdy! looks great .. is that a dual drive? .. are you using anything to take up chain slack when you fold the wheel under?

    Thanks, Bruce!

    Chain slack is certainly an annoyance.. I have a Cyclopedia chain tensioner on it's way to me right now! I bought it about 10 days ago, so it should get here (hopefully) in the next couple of weeks.

    Yes it's a SRAM Dual Drive with with an obnoxiously fun range of gear inches (24.5 - 132.4!) which should get me into and out of any situation relating to hills and flats with a big smile on my face. (I particularly love flying down a hill at 31mph in top gear! Such an adrenaline rush!)

    Here's how I achieved this delightfully unnecessary gearing:

    GEAR HUB: Sram Dual Drive II
    CHAINRING: Vuelta 58 tooth
    CASSETTE: Sram PG850 (11,12,14,16,18,21,26,32)




    I would like to change out my cassette for a more evenly spaced set of cogs though, maybe even 9 speed if I do that.

    The other thing which helps me speed along on my Birdy are the 20 inch wheels and drivetrain upgrades from stock:

    FRONT RIM: Sun CR18, 20" x 22.2mm, 28 hole
    REAR RIM: Sun CR18, 20" x 22.2mm, 32 hole
    SPOKES: DT Swiss Champion 2, 14 gauge
    FRONT HUB: F125, 124 grams, Enduro 6000 2RS sealed bearings
    REAR HUB: Sram Dual Drive II
    DERAILLUER: Sram X4, I swapped in an 11 gram KCNC jockey wheel
    CHAIN: Sram PC850 with KMC MissingLink

    Next on my list / yet to be purchased are the following items:
    Alligator i-Link cables
    brake levers (still deciding on brand/model)
    seat post (either KCNC LightWing or maybe the carbon one that pops up on ebay frequently)
    quill stem (still deciding on brand/model)
    saddle (still deciding on brand/model... I already swapped out the stock Velo saddle for a WTB race saddle, but I want a lighter one)
    bolts... swap as many out for titanium parts as possible
    pedals (considering ditching my MKS caged pedals for Shimano SPD or Crank Bros EggBeaters)

    When I got the Birdy, it was over 34 pounds. It's currently a hair under 27 pounds, and I know if can be much lighter. (One huge weight problem is my love of the hefty Dual Drive hub!)

    Didn't want to buy the $350 B&W for the Brompton.
    Decided to get another folder that will fit the suitcase
    I already have:

    Whoo, new packing method for Dolly the Llama! I test rode it in town this morning and I think it`s going to work great
    Flying out Thursday for a real world mision.

    The last method worked okay, but so much stuff in the rear bag made it droop into the tire if I didn`t keep an eagle eye on it.

    Nice! I've wanted to tour with my Friday, but figured I'd need a trailer (it's a PR, not a Llama). Hmm Hmm Hmm!

    Meanwhile's here's my mini this morning on the way to Santa Rosa (and on to SF):
