    Very nice review and it's an interesting looking bike of which I hadn't heard before.

    Where are you located? And how much for the bike?

    Again, very interesting!

    You'll need to take it apart, grease everything, and put it back together correctly, but if you do that, it might be fine.

    On my bents, i can lift my butt out of the seat going over bumps. Not as easily as on my DF folding bike, but enough to absorb bumps.

    Since you have no experience, let me clarify.

    The ONLY issue converting a folding bike with a conversion kit is finding a Cruzbike conversion kit.

    I ride my Cruzigami folding bike with 20" wheels a lot. I've gone 1/2 a mile without touching the handlebars.

    Of course, it's not quite fair as I can steer with my feet...

    There are several folding bikes with drop bars. You've noticed the biggest problem with them (folding the bike). So go for it.

    1) Check to make sure your bottom bracket is the correct distance. Just like a DF, having the seat too high/too low can hurt your knees.

    2) With a trike, it's possible to really push hard on the...

    That's what I was going to recommend.

    As far as regular bikes go, I'd recommended something where you are upright so you aren't putting as much weight on your hands.

    Sticky means stuck to the top of the list of threads. It was sticky when it started. It is longer.

    Yan is right. You need to make sure you'd be allowed to use a folding bike.

    Maybe you'd like MBB bike where you can use your upper body if you want to (you can also not use it; it's pretty much up to you...)

    Well done, sir!

    Yes, get a tandem for you and your wife. And then also find random people to take on the tandem who wouldn't otherwise ride. :D

    I'm not disagreeing that trail is more important. My point was that wheel base is more important than wheel size (assuming everything else stays the same).

    Wheelsize isn't usually as important as wheel base. Longer bikes feel more stable.

    I agree with habilis.

    If you have to pass through a lot of narrow doorways, barriers, then a trike can be a pain in the @$$. But for most riding, the trike isn't much wider than your shoulders,...

    Based on the efficiency numbers for most IGHs and derailleur systems I've seen, tires are likely to make a bigger difference than transmission.

    Agree with above. I'd wait until at least a year and depending, maybe longer.

    If you want a really large range, you can add a front derailleur to a rear IGH (quite common in recumbents, for example).

    And while I run derailleur systems myself, you're comparing apples to...
