    Check nycewheels.com and calhouncycle.com. They're (I think) the largest Brompton dealers in the US and they list their stock online.

    Well, no, not at all. Driving in Chicago during the week takes significantly longer than using public transport, and - because parking costs ~$25+ - it is significantly more expensive.

    I'll be interested to see how well the Curl rides.

    If it is ever produced.

    I think people here are significantly underestimating the popularity of the Brompton. IMO, Brompton's biggest...

    I don't think that you can meaningfully discuss public transit in the abstract. What works in one city won't necessarily work in another, with the density of the city being a critical factor. You...

    I like the rear rack primarily for stability when folded, but occasionally it's useful for overflow shopping.

    For front bags, I'm torn between the C-Bag (actually, the Carradice City Folder) and...

    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...

    There are a lot of people who've been able to gate check or even carry on Bromptons. Although I think that they have a level of chutzpah that I don't...

    The B Bag is 22x23x11, so there's not an airline size problem. But I still worry about the bag being thrown 10 feet and landing on concrete...

    This is one of my concerns with the B&W case, too. My Brompton has returned unscathed from a couple of overseas trips, but the foam inside has not fared well.

    But a bigger concern is the weight -...

    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...

    It matters a lot where you live and where you will be leaving the bike. In some cities, bike theft is endemic and you need a really strong lock to prevent it from being cut. In other cities, bikes...

    You're biased!

    Also, you seem to be ignoring CREE leds, which are fairly innovative, if also likely the cause of the problems discussed in this thread.
