    Another Dunwich Dynomo here, and fairly regular 100 km rides on my mezzo.

    I just put it in a soft bag, and trust it's tougher than baggage handlers. So far, so good. 10 trips, I guess.

    This seems much less of a problem with folding bikes; I've never used a toilet with a cubicle so small a brompton wouldn't fit. On the other hand, it's a rare moment when you find one large enough...

    I was very happy (after dropping the nose a couple of inches) with a B17s on my mezzo. It later moved (just as happily) to my road bike.

    Nice bike.

    To be clear, if you have the same chainring and cassette as you mountain bike, it's geared much lower. Wheel size needs to be factored in.

    So your highest gear on the mountain bike...
