    BTW, if you're in Germany, you should take a look at the Birdy by Riese und Müller. A well regarded folding bike, generally rides better than a Brompton, doesn't fold quite as small.

    The Tikit is Bike Friday's commuter bike and is different from the others they make. It has small 349 wheels (Brompton-sized) and is meant to fold every day. Their other bikes are much higher...

    Wow, the raw lacquer version. And that's the one with the six-speed hub? That is one nice bike.



    Actually it's the other way around. Whereas nearly all folding bikes are one-size-only, the...

    My favorite part is where he manages to turn on the light. :-)



    Sure, absolutely.

    I presume you're asking about the Brompton vs. Tikit? Though they have the same wheel size and both fold...

    Everyone else is providing just fine suggestions. Let me instead tell you: you're way overthinking this. A flight (or two) from Lexington to Denver is nothing. You and the kids will do great. ...

    You can bring plenty large bags into the Smithsonian. I regularly bring in a folding bike. In a bag. I've also brought in backpacks easily as big as the Brain Bag. The issue is that all...

    I didn't say that you shouldn't ride a gondola: far from it. I just said that gondola rides are for tourists only, and you need to be aware of it up-front. Just like the horse-drawn...

    My brain bag is lined on the bottom and (of course) on the back. All other surfaces are single-ply parapack.

    As you are aware, I'd been looking into bags to attach to the back: I wanted one which could accommodate bottles but was also interested in other options. Failing to find something which fit right,...

    Are you kidding me. Does ASTM really permit this?

    Packing peanuts are an awful choice for two reasons: (1) they are concave and (2) they are compressible. Both problematic for a situation where...

    Thanks all. Actually, the question I had posed was not so much for my own benefit (I don't have a Camera-IO and I have only one brain cell) but for a friend who actually *does* need to carry that...
  16. Can the Brain Bag accommodate *three* laptops?

    Tom Bihn says the BB can hold two laptops, or a laptop and a camera I-O. Why can't it hold three laptops (or two laptops and a camera I-O)? There are *three* surfaces in the interior of the BB with...

    ADding 2.2L to my Brain Bag

    I don't carry around a water bottle, thermos, or umbrella. So what to do with the rear straps on the Brain Bag? The straps barely take a 4" diameter bag, so at 5" diameter, the tripod quiver is too...

    Janine, the reason your Lodge pan isn't smooth isn't because it's not seasoned properly. The reason is because the pan was forged using a sand mold.

    Update.

    So the basic issue with hanging a bag like the Condor is that if you attach it to the compartment dividing wall, even at very mild weight it causes the wall to sag when you open it. But I...

    Also the FlipPouch is only 8.6", way too short.

    The fundamental problem here is: the upper bottle strap for the Brain Bag is far too high. I think it's a clear design error. It should have been...
