Willie, what do you mean by upgrading?
I do not consider a S&S couplers equipped bike as an upgrade of a NWT, just
a different travel bike.
BF models are folding bikes and they can be compared only to other folders,
yet BF are the only that perform like "normal" large wheels cycles, so they
stand in their own category.
As my primary school teacher used to say: never compare apples with pears!!
I was considering upgrading to a bike with couplers but considering the
amount of times I'll be taking a trip that would justify the alternative
bike over my "normal" Bike Friday, EVEN if I were to pay the roughly $70.00
additional charge per flight, it would still take me about 10 years to make
up the additional cost of the couplers.
