    Sorry to hear about the crack, SesameCrunch. Replace the part and sell the bike; you have a more fabulous Moulton anyway.

    clearcastle04, how do you like the full bar ends on your Swift? I have mini bar ends, which I like very much for the additional hand position and for climbing steep hills, but I am wondering if the...

    I can't imagine commuting regularly on my Swift without a standard rear rack--they're just so handy and versatile for carrying things.

    I've never enjoyed carrying my bike folded for any distance. Unfolded, I find it easier to roll (if on a flat surface) or carry (if on stairs--because it's easier to find appropriate spots on the...

    Great job! Now you just have to follow through on Jur's advice and sell the BSM--then you'll only have 8 hungry bikes to feed. ;-)

    Let me add that I highly recommend you do some homework before you plunk down money on a bike. Think carefully about your needs and budget, look at the various Citizens, Dahons, and Downtube models...

    Welcome!

    If you haven't been bicycling since you were a kid, then I think it would be smart to spend less money on your first folder, because you don't have enough experience with them to know...

    mtalinm, I'd try the megarange cassette (with 34T) first, because all you have to change is the cassette (and possibly chain). It also keeps the gearing simpler. If that isn't enough, then I'd...

    SesameCrunch, how many bikes are presently in your stable and what number are you trying to whittle them down to? What for you is "too much" and what would be just right?

    If you are collecting...

    Sir Bikesalot, I think your next step is to go test ride these bikes if at all possible; there's only so much we can tell you in these forums. While I'm a Swift partisan, Bike Fridays have a great...

    Have you looked at Downtube folding bikes? Good quality, inexpensive, easy to modify. Lots of threads in this forum about them.

    To me, the issue around bicycle weight is not about "performance" per se but actual portability. There are circumstances in which I regularly need to carry my bike up and down flights of stairs--to...

    Sammyboy, I have an Ortlieb Shuttle which is a great travel suitcase and uses the same mount as your Office Bag 2. Do you leave your mount permanently affixed or only attach it for special trips? I...

    The bike needs to fold so I can fit in my closet and other small spaces without significant disassembly, so I'll wait for that model to be developed before I give it further consideration.

    Nish, how do you like the upright handlebars? When you pop them off for compact storage how well do they "fit" with the folded bicycle?

    mtalin, that's good to know about the T--perhaps there's been a clarification or change in policy since that incident.

    Shouldn't this question be in the Swift folders thread?
