    But reposting the entire article means that "The Sweethome" gets no revenue from the work they put into producing the article.

    It seems pretty cool. Is there a way to use a QR on the rear tire rather than having to use a wrench?

    That's not logical at all. Which is probably why you felt the need to burnish your logic credentials, since your argument itself lacks any logical basis.

    That's not correct; the report breaks out cycling fatalities separately from walking fatalities. See pp. 52-53 of the report.

    There is a lot of good data in the report, but it is still limited by...

    I just ran across this story noting that the percentage of adult children living with their parents is, at 30% for persons aged 18-34, higher than it's been since 1981. (In an article ostensibly...

    I just went out and measured my Brompton and the front hinge is not in the "excluded area", interestingly enough.

    I don't think the issue is the wheels. Many folders have a long, freestanding seatpost that tends to be angled slightly back; this will act as a lever and put a lot more stress on where it attaches...

    That's old school!

    But it seems somewhat similar to a modern one. Undo the bottom seat tube QR and lift the rear wheel to see if it pivots underneath. If it's been neglected, you may need to...

    It's not really that - the car is a German invention and certainly has its admirers. The difference is that most Europeans cities were built out before the automobile became popular and so were not...

    If you buy a Dahon made within the past 10 years, you will probably be fine if you can find one that hasn't been used much. Like Bargainguy said, there are a lot of lightly used folders out there,...

    The difference is that they take up more space than is allowed. Even the carry-me, with 8" wheels, doesn't comply, being 36" long.

    Having said that, if there is actually room for them and they...

    There are bikes that will *fit* in overhead bins (I think Bromptons will fit in larger ones), but they don't actually comply with the 22x14x9 carry-on limits of most airlines.
