    I'm going to guess that's for extra compactness. I think in day to day usage you wouldn't do that. Stick some folding peddles on there for easy folding... and leave the seat post up so you can use...

    Hi Birdy fans... Anyone have an idea where I might be able to test ride a Birdy in the SF Bay Area? I'm thinking of adding to the stable, and it will either be a Birdy, a Brompton or another BF. ...

    Nice job all around. I haven't had a look through the entire thread so please forgive the ignorant question... Do they still fold?

    I would call Bike Friday and discuss it with them. They can give you all the tips on reducing the size to make it fit.

    I think the Xootr/HPM Swift is probably a better design for what this particular bike is trying to do. I was commenting mostly on the fold... which doesn't seem to be doing much for the bike. If...

    It looks fine as a mini-velo. However, I don't see the point of this style of half folding bike. Seriously, why would one buy this over a Brompton?

    Downtube also makes a folder with suspension.

    That said, I've always liked the Jetstream. If I was getting a Dahon, that would be it.

    Not to throw a wrench into the Tikit vs NWT thing... but I thought the Bike Friday Silk was essentially their attempt to make a 20" commuter folding bike? Sort of a best of both worlds.

    I disagree. I've shopped for groceries on a Tikit. Is it the best grocery shopping experience I've ever had? No, but it was not that different than the video. The only time it was more difficult...

    If money weren't an issue, I would recommend a Bike Friday Tikit (which is what I have at 240 lbs), but since it is... check out Dahon and Tern. Both have bikes with max rider weight around 230 lbs.
