    Just for emphasis, the most important thing from the earlier thread is that all folding bikes involve tradeoffs. Bromptons have a good combination of those tradeoffs.

    Since all of these folding...

    If Thor is right that the Curl comes in at $1200 with a 7 speed IGH, rear rack with "EZ wheels", adjustable stempost, but no front bag mount to the frame, I think Brompton should be worried if their...

    70x22 with a 16" rear wheel produces the following via Sheldon's gear calculator. Probably a bit low for most folks but it could be made higher with a wider tire. Overall, it seems fine to me.

    I'm guessing that the gearing is not too different from a tikit which is 23-71" with an 8-speed alfine.
