    Folders have an advantage over coupled bikes in at least one area - easier to break down / reassemble for carrying onto public transport. Not so easy on a coupled bike though certainly possible.

    Miyata alu bikes are nice rides - I had an Omnium for awhile. Not particularly common, tho.

    My guess is that the bike was originally $200, pump $40 value, originally selling for $230/both. Seller probably knocked the price down from $200 to $150 but forgot the original bike + pump price.

    Titanium has excellent corrosion inhibition, but on the Brommie, it's only the rear triangle in ti. The rest of the bike will be steel.

    I once bought a Halfway from the original owner and sold it. From the bike's point of view, I was the replacement dork. All makes perfect sense to me.

    Can't adjust the play on a cartridge bearing, not meant to be user-serviceable.

    So this is a 9-speed cassette on your P20? Could be a bent skewer on the nondrive side. Have you removed the skewer and rolled it on a flat surface to see?

    Trek 2200 Composite w/Veloce

    What would this '94 Trek bring in your neck of the woods? I installed new hoods, tape and SPDs, otherwise it's fairly original with Veloce 8-sp ergo. Thanks!

    Here in the midwest US, mixtes not so hot outside of highly urban areas like Chicago. Add to that, we seem to be having a very soft year for used bikes. Sad, because some of these mixtes ride so...

    Well, there is (or was) the Brompton toolkit that cleverly fits inside the frame:
