For example, how would you carry THIS for 100 yards, or up to a 3rd story attic bedroom?

When I started looking for a folding bike speed and being lightweight were top criterias. Almost bought a Dahon Mu 10SL from Thor (sorry Thor). Gave it more thought and realized I got other bikes that are fast and light. Fold size, comfort became the new top criteria and the Brompton came on top. I think mine will be north of 30lbs too once I add the bag and water bottle.
