    I like this one a lot .... ultra low gears ( 38 t/ 21 t) with a Sram freewheel Automatix hub. This bike will be great to pull a trailer full of stuff to the boat in far away anchorages. Or climb the hills on Caribik islands to get that view from the top. 36 spokes in the back, a pump in the seatpost, full metal folding pedals, Andros Stem for upright riding , or downhill speeding ... rides great and folds small ... :-)

    Now I need the time and money to load the boat and the bike up and go sailing where it is warm and the water blue ...

    That's awesome! I didn't think you could stuff Big Ben tires onto the Dahon frames unless they were built specifically for those tires.

    correct. also, there was an even earlier version with a 28.6mm top tube, no canti bosses (caliper only), and 1 1/8" headset!

    I've really got a soft spot in my heart for Bike Friday's. I really doubt I'll ever own one (and I'd do bad thing to it if I did), but they really are very pretty, very functional bikes.

    I'm a big fan of the MBB (moving bottom bracket), not so much the twisted chain (although to be fair, I've never ridden one, so I'd love to try).

    being Custom if you wand the whole front wheel drive to turn with the wheel , just say that ..

    the NL made Flevobikes hinged the frame under the seat and to steer you just leaned , you could be

    doing something else with your hands they were not needed to steer it. http://flevofan.ligfiets.net/

    The mixie straight edge looks like it is a good bit longer that the respect bike. I was shying away from the respect mini velo on account of quite how short the wheel base is. I am waiting on a geomerty chart from mixie tech support right now, i will let you know
