Whenever I read your posts...I want to scratch out my eyes. As soon as txt went mainstream, people forgot how to navigate the QWERTY with regards to the punctuation and CAPS. I mean really thatsut...I know none of us are perfect...but we're not 14 years old either. Your posts are painful to look at. Ummm...spellcheck?

(gasp) yes 20" wheels

i have done a great deal of researh and know what i want so please only post a FS bike thats packs/folds. additionally do you think i could get away with smaller wheels on this frame? e.g. see image below. ANd do you know what model it is? and if there are any others that can do it?
I'm confused. No wait! You're confused. Do you want a bike to ride singletrack(s) or do you want a bike to tour? Being that this is a mountain bike forum, I only assume the former...thus a 20" folding dually is about as brilliant as kicking yourself in the twig'n'berries. If you've "done a great deal of research and know what you want"...why are you here? Positive reinforcement?

A 20" folding dually is as worthless as the blue one you see above. Terrible idea. Ask Google about Burro Bikes. They make a good portable 2" travel rigid dually. (it may take a minute...but you'll get it)

Looking at your other thread that you're baiting so much...you seem desperate.

Would like some help in a name for my bike.

was thinking something along the lines of.... Ekahau.... "mayan god of Travellers", but is not very catchy but symbolically the mayan walked the longest from africa thus respect is due.

or ....hawk... because i often see birds of prey when I out riding my bike in th middle of nowhere and i think they are similar to the type of tourer i am e.g. solo, independant also free as a bird
Truly a visionary

Folding torch and mount, when in use sticks out (see top photos) when bike is folded "point sykward". 900 lumen for country roads with no street lights at night when theres no moon light
I'd like to see the spec's on that torch...900lm is impressive and truly unbelieveable. Mine was marketed as 900lm, but the SSC P7 driven at a "fairly hot" 2.8amps is still only in the 700 range on a good day.

You came to the MTB forum for touring advice...yet you've done "a great deal of research".

It takes more than an allen wrench to remove a headset.

I'm done for now, but I really don't know about you, man.
