    What I didn't like about the original Brompton saddle was that it wasn't a suspended leather saddle like a Brooks, Gyes or Persons.

    Folding bike or not I haven't come across many mechanics these days who have much experience working on coaster brakes anyway. IMHO it's more of a hassle to accomplish what you would like to do than...

    This.

    All I need is to keep the bike at a good height so that I can work on it while I'm standing upright and to allow the wheels and crank to spin. Even if I had to torque something down it...

    In most cases I get questions about my Bike Friday but the comments I do get are from fellow cyclists and are generally positive. The very few times someone says something negative/idiotic I offer my...

    I think calling the MIT V8 "hardy" is still a little premature. Give it a few more years and see how it fares. I have a few econo bikes that are still functional after several years but they...

    That's what I had to do. The pedals, saddle, seatpost and tool pouch went into my carry on to make room for my sleeping bag and tent in the case. Volume vs weight management.

    Initially I would only knock my ankle against the stock wheels, not with any force, just enough to be annoying. I flipped the wheels so that the portion with the larger diameter is inboard and they...

    I'd hate see how the swivel casters would fare. After just the first couple of flights, my F'Lite had paint scuffs and gouges and looked seriously abused... less than 24 hours of handling by luggage...

    You can find awesome stuff at Goodwill in big cities. Around here it's old farming and tobacco growing tools/implements, crappy 30 year old stereos and stained mattresses. Oh, I forgot to mention all...

    Just a few things to consider even though my experience is apparently a rarity with this sort of setup. I bought a Samsonite F'Lite case last year, which is right at the 62" limit, and built a...

    I have Schwalbe Marathons on my Brompton and Bike Friday. Haven't any flats with them and they are good performers in the dry, wet and snow. They roll well and ride smoothly. They aren't inexpensive...

    My NWT does fold but it's not as elegantly as the Brompton. There aren't any catches, snaps or magnets to keep it folded, I use velcro straps to keep everything together. Also my NWT doesn't really...

    I own both a Brompton and Bike Friday NWT and love both. I use my Brompton mainly for commuting because of it's quick and very compact fold. It's certainly a very capable bike but prefer the ride...
