    I got to agree... if you can move up to 20" wheels, you're probably more likely to find something really rideable in your price range.

    I think a Brompton is probably the best riding and most...

    You could just get the extended seat post. I'm 5'11" and 220 lbs, so almost the same physical size you are. I ride my Brompton with the extended post and it feels great. I assume that the bike has...

    I agree with the others... mark it up to pretty standard marketing and hyperbole to generate interest.

    I take the opposite stance... I don't mind the hype. Sell me on it! Convince me to buy it!...

    That seems... pretty *harsh* for a bike that is not even supposed to be delivered until next spring.

    I do not classify myself as either a bicycle rider or a cyclist. My friends who put in centuries are true cyclists.

    I'm a cycling "enthusiast". This means I buy odd/semi-expensive bikes, lock...

    Fair enough. Although I think the only tool you really need is your standard pocket bike tool with hex drivers. I would think most cyclists when traveling would at least carry that and know how to...

    I'll disagree on this one. It's pretty simple. I have the extended seat post on my Brompton, as well as the B&W case. I've flown a number of times. Yes, I remove the seat so that it fits better, and...

    So, to the OP... what did you end up getting or thinking of getting? Going to get yourself a nice holiday present? :thumb:

    You're probably correct. I think what I read dealt more with issues for the bolting system, rather than the frame itself.

    I believe the Smooth Hound, Bullhead, and other similar 1st or even 2nd gen lock jaw bikes are no longer available. I looked into getting one for quite a while, and had to really scour the web to...

    Well, I'll beg to differ then. I'm 5'11". And I can easily ride my Brompton. I do have the extended seat post, but it's not like the seat post is some fantastically huge post. I've heard of much...

    A better spec'd Tern would probably be more comfortable than a minimally spec'd Brompton. However, if you spend the additional money to get a nice saddle (e.g., Brooks or one to your liking), upgrade...

    Could be... I'll have to see it for myself when it finally arrives. I want to check out how much tolerance there is - if any - for alternate tires, accessories, etc.

    I always wished Brompton would...

    Actually... the Brompton in a B&W case does not require any disassembly... but that's a moot point for the OP given the requirements.

    Brompton in a B&W case. No problems checking it in for flights (at least domestically here in Canada). Maybe some Terns/Dahons/or others could work. I'll report on the Helix next year. Until then......

    It's interesting how both the Helix and the Hummingbird have the rear wheel swing under design - just like the Brompton! Personally, I'm not really sold on the Hummingbird. The silhouette looks...

    Yes.

    I've said a few times that I would sacrifice just a little bit of the Brompton's compactness for 20" tires for a little bit more robustness into the ride. The Helix seems to not only fit...

    Yes. Very.

    Caveat. No folding bike is going to be *super* easy to haul around - it is at least 20 lbs or more of metal, rubber, and plastic. That being said, Bromptons are nice, and they are self...

    Nice review and write up! Have fun with the bike. It looks a lot like a Dahon bike to my untrained eye. I suppose they're all similar given that Dahon (and others I assume) manufacture other brands.
