I've been doing a lot of research and I want a folder that's affordable and easy to get parts for. I can't afford a Xootr/Swift so I'm looking at the Fuji folder however my inseam is 27.5" and I only see the 20" bikes around.
Will my 27.5" inseam give me clearance on a the 17" version for the Fuji Marlboro frame?
Have you ridden the 17"? Height doesn't tell you someone's inseam.
Only one I've ever seen IRL was that one. As I said,I think the toptube would be too long on the 20";IOW,you'd be too stretched out on it even if you could stand over it. Bike Nashbar was selling just the 17" frames on clearance a year or two ago,might be able to contact their tech folks and see if someone remembers what the standover was.
BTW,our inseams are 33 and 34" respectively.

Then why respond with a comment like that? I've never seen a 17,but I've owned a 20 so I can at least make an educated guess that someone who's obviously alot shorter than me isn't going to fit. You haven't offered anything useful.

Well, I found a smaller Fuji today. It fit me perfectly but it was sold. Some tiny Asian girl bought it just before I got to the bike sale in New Paltz. I think I'm going to go with a BMX bike and put a quick release on the front. These are much easier to find. I'm sure this will fit in my car just fine.
