    The B Bag is 22x23x11, so there's not an airline size problem. But I still worry about the bag being thrown 10 feet and landing on concrete...

    This is one of my concerns with the B&W case, too. My Brompton has returned unscathed from a couple of overseas trips, but the foam inside has not fared well.

    Here's the issue: most folding bikes are compact in part because they have a low step-through frame and the rider is supported on a saddle attached to a very long seatpost. The seatpost acts like a...

    It matters a lot where you live and where you will be leaving the bike. In some cities, bike theft is endemic and you need a really strong lock to prevent it from being cut. In other cities, bikes...

    I know that, as a German, you've been fed a media diet which does describe the US in those terms - a country filled with McJobs, obese citizens, lots of violence, and no innovation. It's popular at...

    You're biased!

    Also, you seem to be ignoring CREE leds, which are fairly innovative, if also likely the cause of the problems discussed in this thread.

    I have a Brompton and a Bike Friday, and there are definite advantages to having different types of folders for different types of rides. The Friday is a custom, so it fits me perfectly; it also has...

    That's an interesting conversion. I assume you'll be getting a new back wheel?

    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.

    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...
