I like folding bikes because they look strange and different, but I do agree about adults on BMX bikes, I saw a bit of the bmx Olympic races the other week and whilst they were great to watch, a part of my brain thinks none of The riders Should be over 12 years old, but then I also think ditto for skateboards anywhere, anytime.

If you want the functionality of folding, but don't feel you're been seen at your best on 16 or 20 inch wheels, why not go the full sized folder route, a nice Montague, or a vintage Fugi or Rudge ?
