Would def have to ride that Pedersen;I'm wondering how solid it feels with that seat arrangement.

That last pic of the Bernd's makes me think someone didn't fold their Brompton right.

Smallwheeler what a thread! Thanks for all the research and sharing. Here is one I really like but it is sadly overpriced in the UK and I wonder can you trust the carbon frame? Oribike of Taiwan (who manufacture the Mezzo) do make some other very nice and light non-carbon variants too.

I know it's predictable as this bike was discussed recently but it is absolutely gorgeous in both folded and unfolded mode:

That van belongs to Geoffrey Smith who runs a folding bike shop up here in Santa Rosa CA.
A big part of his business is hiring out Bike Fridays - for visitors day touring around the Sonoma County vineyards.

He was very helpful sorting out the details of my new custom Llama which is currently on order with the factory.
