    In short, if the small neat fold is unnecessary, then I'd stick with the Bike Friday. Your drivetrain and tire choices are much much much better with the NWT.

    Often there are Bike Friday folks willing to let someone take their bike for a test ride. You might consider calling the company to see if there is a local club or contact.

    So I just stuck a wheel with a Big Apple into my NWT. Lateral clearance was tight but there was a few mm to both sides. It would not fit my wife's Pocket Crusoe.

    The "engine" is far more important than the bike.

    In a nutshell, go to a good shop and find a bike that fits well. That will roughly be the fastest bike for you. The best upgrade will be a...

    Obviously, with fenders you will have less clearance. My guess from my own bike is that 2.0" tires (50 mm) with fenders will cause rubbing if...

    From what I observe, there are a bunch of folks using 2.0" tires with the NWT. Typically sans fenders -- but not all -- and they have to partially deflate the tires to get them past the brakes. A...

    It's a great idea. I would make sure that it's easy to strap the carry-on to the top of the trailer too.

    Don't forget ... even though there is a size limit, what agents always check IME is the...

    I've seen a handful around here. But they take up a ton of space. The front basket is very easy to load. Much better than a long tail, IMO.

    Burley Trailers are offset in the rear. The offset makes sense if you want to lay the bike on nondrive side to protect the derailer.

    FWIW, pulling a two child trailer means you take up a...

    Just go with the standard 50mm wide Big Apples. 50 or 60 mm wide will make little difference.
