    Are there any bike shops in your area that sell refurbished old bikes? You can get a lot for your money that way, and still get something that's been gone over very closely by a good shop.

    You can certainly do that. Getting out of the city is step 1, though, and where you end up staying is a factor. If Cambridge is an option, go for it -- there's a MUP (and a fairly...

    Brompton folding bike. :) It's my main city ride. They started making Schwalbe Marathon Winters for that size (ERTRO 349mm) fairly recently; I put a pair on the bike this winter. Until recently,...

    I really like my Petzl e+ -- it has a switch I can turn on and off at will, so I leave it off most of the time. (Especially now that I have a GPS.) And I can use it on low-red to preserve my night...

    I use the smaller version of that REI container. Two of them -- one for sunscreen, one for chamois cream. It's several applications of sunscreen and one application of chamois cream. Both go into...

    For a slightly shorter tour, I did Berkshires to Boston in 2013 (the inaugural run) and it was a lot of fun. Three real days of riding to cross the state, plus they've added some short ride options...

    A23 rim. Which is also known to be on the larger side, so a tire on the tight side + a rim on the larger side = really tough mount/dismount. But they ride beautifully.

    Again -- krobinson103 was talking about a fleche, which means 24 hours to go 360km, thus it's 15kph (9.3mph). Even more eminently doable.

    Nah, he or she is talking about a fleche -- where when we say day, we mean ALL DAY -- all 24 hours. 15 kph minimums. Krobinson103 hangs out lots in the long distance forum. Most of us ride...

    I really liked the ride and flat resistance of the GP4000s, although I took them off after a flat experience where I broke two tire levers and pinched a tube trying to get the tire on/off. (The...

    I've owned a few; the fit is never quite right, although men's jerseys tend not to have the too-short-torso problem that women's often do on me. (I can fit in women's 3XL from several manufacturers,...

    A fun thing to do with the Strava heatmap: zoom out to all of the greater Boston Area, and switch to just runners. The Boston Marathon route is impressively visible.

    I think there might be a bit of a units confusion -- were the drops 2-3 INCHES or FEET? Because you said ' (feet) in your original post, but then you said you didn't know the drops were there, and I...

    And I have a pair now! So excited, although I'm not putting them on quite yet. They are rather tight to get on -- the shop warned me and said if I couldn't get them on to bring the bike in, but I...

    Well, but a lot of the point of a folder is that you can go multi-modal with it. I still pay ungodly amounts for transit, I just also get to ride rather than take the bus at either end of my rail...

    I'm fairly short, so I have the regular seatpost. :) But thanks -- that's very helpful. I'll take a look at the Chariot trailers.

    Thanks. The travois-style trailers on the market right now are way smaller than I need -- the Travoy is the biggest I've found and it's tiny in terms of carrying bulky stuff, but if I was going to...

    Yeah, I guess I shouldn't have put as much info. I'm specifically asking which companies' hitches people have used on their Bromptons and found not to interfere with the size of the folded bike.

    best trailer for a Brompton?

    There's been other posts over the years, but what's available to buy has changed. So I thought I'd see what the current collective wisdom is: which trailer hitches work best on a Brompton? It'd be...
