    Try Panaracer Pasela. The used 26x1.75 Paselas. Their suppleness gives them such a nice ride. Paselas are relatively inexpensive. 2" Schwalbe Kojaks are better than Apples but not nice as Paselas....

    Yes I agree, he does deserve the honorary degrees. Still, the title does not apply.

    Since we are dotting our i's and crossing our t's, I don't think Alex Moulton, great as he was, was a Dr. An honorary one yes, but still.

    I have a couple of cheap ones, $15 with shipping from China, from eBay. They work well and allow me stay drier from perspiration than rain suits in steamy New Orleans.

    For the train I think Brompton, only 6 speeds, on the slow side, and expensive, but it has a great fold and use a road bike for the full ride in. Brompton can do it all but that is what I do. Also...

    I suspect that for a cheap performance tire, Primo Comets will perform better than Kojak in 16x349. I have not tried Kojak in that size.

    If you are looking for better performance, lose the Schwalbe Marathon Plus tires. Try supple tires such as Paselas. There is more chance for flats but for me its a worthwhile trade off.

    I think invisiblehand has it right. The Curl is not a copy. It has a similar fold. It is like when Schwinn had the so called cantilever frame. They patented and no one else could have it. When their...

    In the order of increasing performance, lower to higher in 26" fat tires I have used.

    I would say each is one step above the...

    I have not traveled by plane with my Brompton, yet, but it appears it would fit in the overhead storage. So I thought that just a soft case would work.

    I don't see it as inspired be Moulton. It is just a basic truss a straight on approach.
