    So true. Make certain you have enough top bar clearance so your "nads" won't get crushed if you have to abruptly dismount. Otherwise, your voice may permanently go up a few octaves. (Disregard this...

    Really? You returned that bike for a folding bike? They don't compare. Pehaps you should buy both.
