This Homer goes everywhere man. S&S couplers allow the customer to fold it in half and fit in a bag for travel.

Now this is what a folding bicycle should look like: a Montague Crosstown modified into a roadbike with drop bars. I would choose this over any Bianchi roadbike.

This is too good to be true :drooling:
(but more suited as a knock-down bike than a folding-bike)

New Ritchey concept at NAHBS. It’s a Breakaway in carbon.  Now the pinch bolt from seat tube is absent as the extension of it goes inside the top tube - seat clamp.  Looks neater but you still have to loosen the same number of bolts!!

Apart from the ugly top tube protector it’s a rather nice dèmontable travel bike with Ritchey-esque clamp system.  I couldn’t determine the builder.

Geekhouse CX bike.  Good to see handbuilt steel CX bikes with subtle rack mounts making it an ideal all-season go-anywhere bike!  Sexy seat stays too!

Colour matched frame and fork goodness…. how a road frame is retrofitted with S and S couplers.

White Industries Quick Draw cranks.  These have been around at bike shows for some time now so many have seen them.  Unlike the MKS or Wellgo this concept lets you use any standard pedals to make them quick-release pedals.  The versatility is very attractive for those who want quality pedals swapped over for different shoes or riding style.  Disadvantages are their high prices and they are, in fact, only compatible with the White Industries EVO and VBC rings which are also pretty pricey and some say they are ugly old fashioned.  Otherwise they are very chic and desirable components.

Surly Trucker Deluxe.  Surly stopped offering Traveler’s Check and now simplified (lugless) couplers on their most popular bike LHT.  Only available in 26 MTB wheel size which suit the majority of the intended users.  This particular porteur setup is neat but the rack will never ever fit the suitcase so it’s not packable in any sense.

Roberts Backpack Compact Racer.  It’s a steel and carbon bonded frame with S and S couplers.  Just full of carbon parts that I would be very hesitant to fly with this bike even packed in a hard case but the owner has been riding it very hard for a few years and still going strong….. Perhaps carrying a small piece of carbon fabric and epoxy glue would be useful when fixing minor cracks?  It sure is one of my dream bikes!!

Stevenson Démontable.

It fashions a René Herse style clamp - sleeve system.  The sleeve and clamping areas seem tad more refined however ingress of water may occur (I bet there are drainage holes).  Handmade in Olympia, WA.
