    Of course the point was that those bikes are somewhere between mythological and non-existent in the USA. That said, I don't disagreement with your assessment, but if

    Boy, people act like the Brompton is the only choice.



    There's the Dahon Jifo and EEZZ, which are relatively light and fold fast. The rear hubs are non-standard. One small issue: Dahon has...

    A common mistake, but Dr. Moulton, C.B.E. was not a baronet nor was he never knighted.

    Comparing derailleur gears on the 349mm (16") wheeled Brompton with BikeFriday's 349mm wheeled tikit? The tikit uses - as mentioned - a regular, off-the-shelf drivetrain of a 53T chainwheel driving...

    Well...the Shimano 8 is direct in gear 5, and that's the Shimano 8's most efficient gear. Gear 6 is a single gear train up: a relatively small mechanical inefficiency. Gear 4 is a large ratio gear...

    Everything you need should be in the aftermarket retail box: hub, nuts, non-turn washers for horizontal dropouts, cable, shifter.

    Got no idea about an official primary drive ratio limit. I've ridden my XRK8W for five years with a 25T cog driven by Sturmey's matching FCS80, 30T crankset.

    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...

    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).
