    That's my favorite too, Surferbruce. And maybe if I kept real good records, I could prove it. Maybe

    Mini cars, mini skirts, mini bikes it was all part of the swinging 60's.

    - Dr Alex Moulton who designed the suspension for the original Mini (the car), the Moulton Mini (the bike), and chased mini's (the skirt). Ok I can only substantiate 2 out of 3.
    2000 Montague CX, I do not recommend it, but still ride it.
    Strida 3, I recommend it for rides < 10mi wo steep hills.
    2006 Rowbike 720 Sport, I recommend it as an exercise bike.
    1996 Birdy, Recommend.
    Wieleder CARiBIKE (folding), decent frame.
