If you are going to be using it in the UK a lot Brian, I would recommend
the Tikit. Its much more convenient to take folded on the trains (not
as good as a Brompton though). I have a Pocket Rocket and having taken
it on the train a couple of times I wouldn't try again. Its just too
big and gangly with the handlebars kind of perched on the frame with
nowhere to go and all held together by strapping. The locked together
much neater folded package of the Tikit wins hands down IMO.
