Congrats! The Brompton is a great bike. It will handle most of all the daily situations you want to ride in, and it's portable to boot! Great combination.

Well said. I'm sure we're all hopeful that the Helix succeeds, as it would be an innovative addition to the folding bike arena, but I don't think anybody is deluding themselves thinking that this is...

What's confusing is your negativity towards the Helix. You obviously did not invest in one.

Your scenario is similar to how I ended up getting my Brompton (and other ensuing bikes). I had an event to attend in Prince Edward Island out on the east coast. The last time I was there was for our...

I got to agree... if you can move up to 20" wheels, you're probably more likely to find something really rideable in your price range.

I think a Brompton is probably the best riding and most...

You could just get the extended seat post. I'm 5'11" and 220 lbs, so almost the same physical size you are. I ride my Brompton with the extended post and it feels great. I assume that the bike has...

I agree with the others... mark it up to pretty standard marketing and hyperbole to generate interest.

I take the opposite stance... I don't mind the hype. Sell me on it! Convince me to buy it!...

That seems... pretty *harsh* for a bike that is not even supposed to be delivered until next spring.

I do not classify myself as either a bicycle rider or a cyclist. My friends who put in centuries are true cyclists.

I'm a cycling "enthusiast". This means I buy odd/semi-expensive bikes, lock...

I'll disagree on this one. It's pretty simple. I have the extended seat post on my Brompton, as well as the B&W case. I've flown a number of times. Yes, I remove the seat so that it fits better, and...

You're probably correct. I think what I read dealt more with issues for the bolting system, rather than the frame itself.

A better spec'd Tern would probably be more comfortable than a minimally spec'd Brompton. However, if you spend the additional money to get a nice saddle (e.g., Brooks or one to your liking), upgrade...

Actually... the Brompton in a B&W case does not require any disassembly... but that's a moot point for the OP given the requirements.

Brompton in a B&W case. No problems checking it in for flights (at least domestically here in Canada). Maybe some Terns/Dahons/or others could work. I'll report on the Helix next year. Until then......

It's interesting how both the Helix and the Hummingbird have the rear wheel swing under design - just like the Brompton! Personally, I'm not really sold on the Hummingbird. The silhouette looks...

I've said a few times that I would sacrifice just a little bit of the Brompton's compactness for 20" tires for a little bit more robustness into the ride. The Helix seems to not only fit...
