    A question I've pondered as well.

    Anyhoo, a Dahon Classic III will go into 62" and they're readily available at well under the OP's budget ceiling.

    The EEZZ D3 uses a proprietary, narrow OLD rear hub that will only fit three (9-speed cassette width) cogs. It has a special 9 tooth top cog. I inquired to Dahon about the other two cogs (an 11T...

    I'm sure you've read Greyhound's baggage info web page. Looks to me like folded bikes under 62 inches (H+W+L), less than 50 lbs and packaged in a sturdy fabric bag are just 'luggage'.

    Gears looks pretty good to me using the stock 46T chainwheel and the XRF8W's available 23T cog (2.1 to 7.0 meters development, i.e. 27-87 gear inches).

    A place called Thorusa.com lists the Curve D3 as 'back in stock', but I've pointed out erroneous info on that web site before. :) Anyway, the Curve will certainly fit a Sturmey-Archer XRF8.
