    Sticky: I've been ignoring this incredibly useful thread...

    I've been ignoring this incredibly useful thread for ages because I thought it was about bags for a specific model of folding bike called the "Foldaway."

    Maybe a mod should nix the capitol F.

    Is anyone able to compare the ride quality to that of either a Birdy or a Pacific Reach Road?

    Surprised no one's chosen Birdy. I thought its reputation as jack of all trades (and master of none) was written in stone.

    Most cycling clothes look horrible. Most cyclists have horrible taste. Mocking people who have horrible taste is acceptable and even, to a point, laudable.

    As I've only once or twice seen a Brompton on the street in this region, I'm thinking the demand may be awfully thin. Also, as I sold mine after only a few months, I doubt I'd make the best advocate....

    I have a quick Birdy question that I'll just dump into this thread.

    I was talking recently with a bike shop employee about Birdy's. This shop used to carry them, doesn't any longer. I mentioned...

    It looks so cool... until you notice the "folded" handlebars flopping around like Goofy's ears.

    My Brompton S2L was the first and last bike on which I could ride hands-free for more than a split second. There were several things about that bicycle that bugged me, to the point that I sold it,...

    M.I.T. paper on small wheels?

    My Googling powers are failing me. I'm trying to find a paper I've more than once read reference to, apparently an M.I.T. thesis arguing that the ideal wheel diameter for a human powered vehicle is...

    Strange, I've read so much about Moulton and Pashley, and never come across this matter.

    From the linked article: "Today, the Moulton Bike Company is wholly owned by Pashley, bringing together two iconic bicycle brands."

    Is this true? First I'd heard.

    When I've test ridden bikes with internal hubs, I've been surprised by how much the weight imbalance--the feeling of pulling something behind me--has bothered me. I wouldn't have considered these...

    I'm actually not. I just rode it to see how it compared to the TSR 8. A TSR 9, or something with a double chain ring, is probably what I want. I'm tempted to try cowhorn bars, but then I'd lose one...

    Bridgestone Moulton vs Moulton TSR?

    Considering ride quality and speed.

    I've found two or three opinions online favoring the Bridgestone over the TSR--and none expressing the reverse preference.
