    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...

    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.

    How much does that thing weigh? And report back if you get it fitted in a way you like
