wsj article on fashionable folders
kind of poorly researched. ignored bike friday completely? and stupid claims about "twitchy" rides, when any folding bike rider knows you get over the twitchy-ness in the first 10 minutes

i guess some exposure is better than nothing

Seems about right,mass market uneducated narrow minded attempt to review folding bikes. First review 6 bikes, 2 of which aren't folders!

yeah its not 'twitchy' its more 'maneuverable' is the correct word they need to be more politically correct !
