I own a Burley travoy which I've used with my Brompton and it works well. The travoy's fold, in particular, is quick and clean, and it makes a very light and compact package. I'm particularly...

Here's the issue: most folding bikes are compact in part because they have a low step-through frame and the rider is supported on a saddle attached to a very long seatpost. The seatpost acts like a...
