    fixed/ss folders

    I am now officially obsessed with these. Yes, they are incredibly nerdy, and yet awesome.

    Yeah. I don't think anyone has come up with a design that really combines fast and compact folding with ride quality yet.

    I test rode one of these today, and while it's an awesome concept the execution isn't quite there.

    So its the folding part that you love. I guess that makes sense if you wanna toss it in the back of your car or a cubicle at work.
    Otherwise, id run a BMX bike.

    Yep. I'm looking at the possibility of a funky commute for my next job which would mean either a lock-up-in-the-rain-all-day beater or a folder. A folder would be a way more fun project and would have applications outside of commuting.

    There is a whole giant world of folding bikes here in Japan. Its amazing.
    There are bike shops that focus only on folding bikes.
    I think you'd be happy.
