I use a Finish Line chain cleaning tool and it works well. Simple and pretty intuitive within minutes.

Most are pretty much variations of the same thing. Don't pay too much.

An extended and telescopic does practically the same thing, except the telescopic is more flexible (but heavier and more expensive) in that it allows the bike to be folded smaller than the extended....

It's not that uncommon - I believe the Xootr does not (and apparently rides very well), and so does the Japanese Tyrell bikes.

Both apparently have excellent ride quality due to their non-folding...

That's actually pretty much how I felt when I decided to get a folding bike over 2.5 years ago. Having only had an MTB and zero experience with foldies, I just looked at weight because in my naivete...

Right on. My entire cycling wardrobe is based on visibility and what's wrong with that? I tend to pair a bright top with a muted bottom which balances out nicely imo - so usually I pair a bright cyan...

Nice - I'm more an MTB guy so the only racing folders I've ever paid attention to are the Tyrells and some of the Terns.

One of the reasons I'm looking at Birdy is that I want to have a compact...

Dang... I'm from Singapore too and the T20 looks gorgeous. I'm still leaning towards a Birdy - I think it's not quite fair to compare the price of a more conventional folder vs one with a unique...

Congrats on your new ride! It is indeed a beauty.

I was just about to jump in suggesting you keep 2 folders - a cheap 20" one for trashing around and the Brompton for rides around town - and it...

I was definitely on the path to getting a Birdy because I'm an MTB rider and I wanted something compact yet suited to uneven roads for fun traversal over mild off-road and urban obstacles.

Agree with Jur... Neobike was originally licensed to produce Bromptons but after that was revoked, they kept the plans and tools and illegally started making poor quality clones.

What you might find useful is the Nitto Front Rack for Brompton. I guess it was originally designed by them but there's a few copycats on the market now, including a Titanium version.

Plausible, but if their sales strategy is going to be predicated on paranoia, then expect sales to be slow - and their competitors might buy one and copy it anyway.

Indeed - one would think they could have put in a 2 second shot of NOT dragging it in a 1 min video. Definitely looks interesting though.

I think the Berry Crush looks awesome, but so does the Lime.

Lime's a little too common for my tastes now though.

Don't you know, the pros (like me) ride with only 2 chainring bolts. Those added grams are an unnecessary burden.

I would think that should be included as standard, given how useful it is! For me it's proven more useful than the trouser strap. And the pump that I've never used from Day One.

I just meant the generic black velcro strap that came with both my Bromptons (maybe it's just from my LBS). Wouldn't that secure the folded rear wheel to the top tube?

If I read you right, isn't that easily fixable by using the included Brompton strap to keep them together?

Looking forward to some photos! It's certainly an interesting idea and more neat than the SR, but is there any way to install/uninstall the add-e quickly to allow the full fold?
