comment Need advice on choosing the right folding bike
I strongly recommend taking your folding bike for a test ride before buying. While test-riding the Dahon Eco, I found the Eco's geometry on the front handlepost and headset combined with the wheel size resulted in a "loose" steering that felt uncomfortable. Switching to the Speed D7 gave us more comfortable steering in a folded size we were comfortable with. TL;DR: Test drive your bike before buying.

comment Safety vests: Yellow vs. Orange?
Thanks for this chart! This does a good job of showing the relative importance of colors to the eye, but does that really translate onto the road? For example, if I'm riding my bike along next to lush fields of sunflowers, would I not be better off with orange? I think I agree with STW's and Stephen Touset's comments... Good to know about the spectrum though.
