    I agree with Pine Cone's comments, bullhorns provide a good compromise between the fast/road riding position and ability to retain a compact riding position.

    No front brake and the crank looks too much forward of the seat stay, not sure it will be particularly comfortable.

    Some alternatives for you to consider.
    Have a look at Mezzo folding bikes, In you budget range you should get a used one in good condition without any problems. If you are lucky you might be able to...

    I think its time you asked your doctor to change your medication, its clearly giving you hallucinations.

    Sounds plausible, the Rudge brand has long been part of the Raleigh group. In the UK, I have seen quite a few 20's badged as Triumph, another brand owned by Raleigh. In the 1990's Raleigh were...

    Excellent write up, I enjoyed reading about your ride and the looking at the photos, thanks for sharing.

    As I said on the previous page, using Loctite might sip the pin spinning while you are drilling it out. Take a look at the Loctite Bearing Fit range, 641, 635, 638 etc.. I have successfully milled...

    One option would be to sell the bike and get a Dawes Kingpin instead. Looks very similar but has the advantage of standard threaded bottom bracket. Dont know if they were available in the US.

    Is WD40 named after post code it was invented in? :)

    Sometimes loosening screw can be a mystery but what suspect is happening is that the bearing are worn or perhaps corroded. Some bearings will...

    I expect the bearings to be under the large black bit that forms the stem hinge. Take care when removing it, lots of small ball bearings will fall out and roll away never to be seen again.

    I think Dadbar means you have to remove the front wheel, not the tire. Removing the rear wheel as well as front makes a quite compact package, slightly bigger than the diameter of the wheels.

    The Montaues will serve your purpose, its just that one is over priced, there will be others at a more reasonable price. If you want a Bi frame they were also sold as Montague M-100, Schwinn and BMW...

    I dont have any experiance of the newer model but I have very recently bought a Rudge Biframe which is Montague Biframe as sold in the UK by Raleigh in the early 1990's. I have not ridden it yet as I...

    Is the bike you are going to see the steel frame one that looks the same as the Montague Bi-frame or is it the more modern aluminium frame with twin top-tubes?

    I might be wrong but I think its a Tern Joe frame re-branded and with a different spec.
