    I agree with the above two responses. If consider 48/38 or 36/22 {I run a 48/38/22).

    1) Remember it is total weight that matters (rider+bike+crap). So, depending on how much you weigh, the effect may not be huge. 12 lbs may only be a 5% effect and that 5% is only for very steep...

    I've got the origami and I've done that (and more) to it. I'm quite happy with it. The bike has good bones.

    This is what I do and why. But putting it on the left side (in us) to make bike look wider makes sense to me, too.

    On my regular bike, I've got clipless pedals. On my folding bike I didn't, but going down hill, I had to stop pedaling as my feet kept flying off the pedals. I felt horrible not being attached to the...

    Just keep riding, whatever it is you want to ride. (When you do get around to trying a recumbent trike, you'll see that it really is just like a bike crossed with a go cart - they are almost too much...

    I was thinking of attaching the wheels on the outside of the bracket that currently holds them. You could still fold it then and get significantly bigger wheels.

    Depending on different variables, it takes about 5 times as much power to do 18 mph compared to 9 mph. So, it might be closer to 2.5 times as much. If anybody really wants to answer the question from...

    My understanding was that certain physical stores would have bikes. If you want to see one in person, talk to Paul.

    Even for regular tandems, you can change the timing gear so the two riders have a different cadence. If you ride two delta tries such together, you get two completely independent transmissions.

    OK. This is what I don't get about a bunch of posters here.

    Just because your knees don't mind mashing doesn't mean this is the case for everyone.

    If not having low gearing works for you, then...

    Agreed. You can get bigger trolley wheels which helps. It just takes a bit of wrist to keep bike upright in any case.

    If you found a good deal on a used 12" bike, then I'd do that. Yes, it might not last him as long, but it should last him 'til he's ready to go to a 16" wheel (and, yes, you don't want to get too...

    You can add a Cruzbike conversion kit to a folding bike:Introducing the Cruzigami Mantis - BentRider Online Forums
    Not the smallest fold, but small enough to get on the train during rush hour.

    On your current bike, try both a stem riser and an adjustable stem. You'll be able to get a much more upright position without spending a lot of money.

    This. Or more simply put, this.

    Ride whatever you want to ride. One or more wheels. As often as you can.

    But physics is physics. Any more questions?
