    I've had a Xootr Magnesium for years .. I use it all the time .. I also had a Strida .. stock on 16" wheels, you get around 48 g/i .. so to hit 15mph, you'd be approaching 100 rpm.. I ran the 355...

    Just in case you don't switch the flat bar out, I like the Ergon GP5 .. super comfortable, many hand positions, and doesn't affect the fold much in many cases..

    The Strida will fold faster, if that is a concern, but the Brompton folds small, and is just an ingenious fold compared with most.. I use mine for shopping (as a trolley with front bag attachment)...

    For what it's worth, the arms shouldn't be so far apart .. first place I'd start is getting the tops of the arms closer together by taking shims out from behind the pads .. note the angle that the...
