I can't imagine commuting regularly on my Swift without a standard rear rack--they're just so handy and versatile for carrying things.

Great job! Now you just have to follow through on Jur's advice and sell the BSM--then you'll only have 8 hungry bikes to feed. ;-)

Let me add that I highly recommend you do some homework before you plunk down money on a bike. Think carefully about your needs and budget, look at the various Citizens, Dahons, and Downtube models...

If you haven't been bicycling since you were a kid, then I think it would be smart to spend less money on your first folder, because you don't have enough experience with them to know...

mtalinm, I'd try the megarange cassette (with 34T) first, because all you have to change is the cassette (and possibly chain). It also keeps the gearing simpler. If that isn't enough, then I'd...

SesameCrunch, how many bikes are presently in your stable and what number are you trying to whittle them down to? What for you is "too much" and what would be just right?

Have you looked at Downtube folding bikes (http://www.downtube.com/)? Good quality, inexpensive, easy to modify. Lots of threads in this forum about them.

Nish, how do you like the upright handlebars? When you pop them off for compact storage how well do they "fit" with the folded bicycle?
