    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. ...

    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.

    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.
