i am not interested in a Bike Friday, bob. I am not willing to pay the price premium of customization options, after-sales support and developed world labor market wages and taxes. I asked the question in order to flush out an often-ignored issue, one that is often left out of the discussion - price. Far too often suggestions are thrown about with little regard for price. Brompton, Bike Friday, etc. are nice bikes, unique in their own right and all, but they are undeniably expensive (or over-priced, depending on the alternatives available to you, or the alternatives to which you allow yourself to be open to). A bit of perspective and self-awareness is in order, I believe. Believe it or not, the world of folding bikes is much wider than B & BF.
