comment What makes a folding bicycle so difficult to ride?
I rode a mile alongside a British couple that started on they're Friday's from San Diego in June, and were cruising thru Bellingham WA in October, still on tour.

comment What is a good way to keep my tires from going flat easily?
I've only had one flat with my SMP's, they shed rock and glass readily, I totally like them. The flat I got was when striking a roofing nail squarely in the middle and it jabbed right thru the Kevlar belt in the middle. Unlikely, but simple to fix.

comment What makes a folding bicycle so difficult to ride?
The ergonomics of folding bikes vary as much as full full sized diamond frames. Consider these varieties: the Dahon makes a folding 3-speed "marine" bike, optimized for salty conditions; Strida makes a triangle shaped bike that's really quick to fold, great for multi-modal transit commuting; while Bike Friday will do a bike fit and produce a bike you can tour a continent on.

comment Low Top Tube Xtracycle Donor Frame?
I like this frame design, and I like the Neko's frame design. They make me think that should look at early 29er frames because I don't need disk. However the market on hardtail 29er frames seems pretty slim.

comment How to prevent my bike from tipping over when using just one pannier?
You can also use a lonely toe cage strap for either a wheel strap or a brake strap as well. These are pretty cheap at bike coops, or possibly available for tip at a bike shop.

comment Possible to repair a pushed in braze-on?
I've zip-tied the bracket in place in the mean time. I know that zippies are cheap, but when its freezing out, a stray strike with my foot will bust the zippie off.

comment How to clean out the inside threads of a braze-on?
I would assume that a citrus-based cleaner (eg SimpleGreen) might help.

After getting the threads cleaned out, when you do run the bolt in there, grease the bolt threads a bit so you don't risk wasting your effort to some rust later.

comment Bicycles on Farms?
This thread on Bikeforums.net brought up some good ideas as well: bikeforums.net/showthread.php/… The description of the trike losing traction is very telling. Also, I should get to talk to my farmer friend this weekend.
