Mini Velo. I have to say that I really want to get one, since I'll be moving into an apartment soon. Of course, the cost of the apartment means I can't afford to get one...

What have you done? Evil Mini-velo pushers. It's a good thing that BD is out of stock. Must not get, must not get, do not want....

Whats the point really? Yes more compact but you can achieve about the same just removing the front wheel right? Well either way if you get one enjoy it

Not quite...removing the wheel means two pieces to carry and a bike can only roll with the front end held up -- very cumbersome IMO.
