  1. Some things to consider about the Africabike......

    Some things to consider about the Africabike... What's your terrain like? It's only a 3-speed hub which is fairly limiting if you have hills, both for easier climbing and for speedier descents. It's...

    Bike Friday is a builder of folding bikes with a long and exceptional reputation. They just used Kickstarter to give themselves more flexibility on the business end of things. No need to worry about...

    I'm pretty patient with load times, so this is more of a data point than a complaint. But I've noticed that the forum loads noticeably slower for me while I'm using it in the US than when I'm...

    Since it sounds like riding is the primary use, with folding being a once-in-awhile sort of thing, I'd recommend you consider a 24" wheel model, like an Airnimal or Tern Eclipse. I think Airnimals...

    You're right. It's another brand produced by Dahon. I believe it's targeted at big-box stores and the China domestic market.

    How about a Tern Stow Bag? They fit 20"-24" bikes, so your Mu should be no problem.

    Regarding the drop bars... Since the VRO stem is considerably wider than standard stems, you'll need to find a drop bar that can safely be used with that system. I know they're out there, but the...

    I'd give ebikes.ca a call and discuss things with them. I've seen several "Stoked" long-john bikes (Cetma, Bakfiets, etc), all of which were mounted via brackets. Now that Grin (ebikes.ca) has taken...

    One big plus I'd put in the Mundo's corner is the Bread Basket. So much focus goes to the rear cargo on these bikes, but I really appreciate the front cargo that you can handle with the frame...

    Totally forgot about this thread, and haven't been on the boards lately. Sorry if I didn't reply to anyone earlier.

    I agree with much of what Vantiki says about the Big Dummy pros, but wanted to point out that the Mundo frame is disc-ready and if you're building from the frame up, you can choose your components to...

    You're right that Shimano has never recommended it. But that's all going to change when they release their Alfine Di2 setup with brifters.

    That's my understanding. Lighter, stronger, cheaper. Great combo if these turn out to all be true!

    Pretty sure LT just stands for "long tail", and refers to their system of attachments. It is the common system shared by all Xtracycle compatible frames (Radish, Big Dummy, Free Radical, etc.). What...

    This is just folder-itis getting a hold of you. You'll naturally just have to get a second folder with a hub gear.

    Internal hubs are great, but they do tend to add weight to the bike. A big reason derailleur systems are used on folders is to shave some weight off. There are lots of hub options out there. You...

    I never thought I'd combine those two words in the same sentence either. I've been lusting after a Largo for some time now, precisely because I have a wee baby on the way. But if I didn't have kids I...

    What role does your Cetma play for you? If the BD is doing most of what you need, do you find your Cetma to be superfluous?

    It was the largest turnout yet, according to Mike from Trophy. The mood seemed less jovial than it did last year, and the route felt shorter and/or less organized. All the same, it's always fun to be...

    Even if you hadn't listed out plenty of qualifiers for a cargo bike, I'd still suggest you get one. In my opinion, a cargo bike can be useful for everyone! The Mundo is a fantastic choice. If I were...
