    I've only brought my tikit into one restaurant. They were happy to put it in the coat check.

    I think a NWT in a shopping cart will get really old quick.

    If you're friction shifting the front, it matters very little.

    I think any short cage rear derailer would be fine with regards to clearance. But is the Kent folder indexed?

    If shortness is all you care about, there are a bunch of single chainring groups...

    Just to be clear, I think it's a fine bike. I'd buy another one if my circumstances were different. And I think one could do 10, 20, 30+ miles on a Brompton. But in practice, if someone is riding...

    I didn't see the original 5km reference outside of your post. But I think 5km is considered pretty short in the US. Mind you, "long" and "short" is poorly defined ... I think it will also depend on...

    Folding, rolling, and packing the tikit is easier than a NWT. If you're not riding off road and you're a casual rather than sport rider, I'd seriously consider a tikit over a NWT. If you don't need...

    Are you sure it's the wheel and not the rear triangle? That is, should we assume that you've measured this with a dishing tool? I suppose it could be something wacky like uneven spacers on the...

    Although it seems to be getting somewhat better, my rough take is the the market is pretty soft at the moment for used bikes. Especially for travel bikes like Bike Fridays which are often second...

    Just based on anecdotes, most people seem to think that their durability and ride are both pretty good. My experience is that their customer support after purchasing new or used is also quite good. ...

    I never noticed any big-small wheel difference with the cold. My studded tires on big wheel bikes are about 5mm wider. I hardly ever ride through the snow; but the studded tires make a big...

    It is an interesting design. Mounting a freewheel onto the frame is a twist ... did Cinelli produce a frame/freewheel bike in the 60s? And from the website I see that you alter the wheelsize to fit...

    I don't know enough about the fork -- or engineering -- to say it will break, but unless this is just a fun project I agree with Thor that it's a waste of time and energy. If it's just for fun, good...

    As an aside, I think the fork crown is generally considered part of the fork. Your fork lacks cantilever mounts on the fork blades.

    Really? If it's a NWT then you can normally fit close to 50mm wide tires. Maybe they exist, but it would be unusual to have a set of caliper brakes that reach around a wide tire with a fender.

    If you're careless when folding the bike with the front derailer, the chain can get stuck on the front derailer and it can get bent out of shape. I'm guessing that this person screwed up and the...

    There has been a lot of testing on the front rack. It's been around for over 5 years with lots of people giving it real world use. I'm not worried about it. My personal experiences is that the...

    I suppose; but it doesn't worry me. But what I really need to know is whether the Tektro BX3V sits flush against the brake boss.

    Assuming that we are moving the rack forward because of a new set of brakes, a spacer -- something like a washer -- would move the eyelet mounting location in the wrong direction. One would new a...

    There are three mounting locations. In front of both brake studs and a fender eyelet. The three mounting locations make it very stable; but reduce the tolerance for changes.

    I'm on a smart phone so this is a bit awkward. But the installation instructions are in this short manual.
