=v= Yep, parsing ambiguity aside, that's what I figured you
were getting at. I've also found, since moving to New York
City, that folding bikes are also ideal for small apartments.
In fact, I believe Manhattan buys most of the folding bikes
in the U.S., though mostly cheapo brands with few gears (as
there aren't many major hills to deal with).

=v= I got rid of my car in 1990 and had to struggle with all

bicycles on transit systems -- until I got the Bike Friday.
It's definitely a win. With BicycleR Evolution trailers, it's
been pretty smooth sailing ever since.
=v= BTW, you might be interested in these email lists:
