Work for me is a good 20 miles away, mostly uphill, and in traffic environments necessitating good brakes. It's not a contest: for any distance over, say, 5 miles, the Tikit's superior rideability is a big deal to me.
Ah the guy with nearly nil hours on a Brommie speaks up once again.

A DIblasi ,(and possibly a Dahon curve), both have a smaller footprint than a Brompton if you stand them on their ends,it is taller however. Photo of a Brompton clone compaired to the Diblasi. The Diblasi is also much narrower than a Brompton.

Edit ; I have just realsied you properly mean it stands indepentantly, not its foot print is the smallest. Sorry!
