    SS coupler bikes won't fold quickly enough to fit a bike onto a bus or other transit -- they are packable bikes, not foldable ones. That may be the case for most 26-inch wheel bikes too. It's bikes...

    I did a month long tour with just my smartphone for a camera. I put it on a Bento box on the top tube, so it was easy to grab, and the pictures came out just fine for the crazy guy blog. A fellow...
