Foldable bikes are the way to go. They’re small, they look cool (in a geeky sort of way), and of course they fold up for easy storage and transport. I love my New World Tourist, but the Swift Folder is pretty cool too. They’re not cheap, however. If I hadn’t been able to get my NWT second-hand and cheap, I think I’d be stuck pining for one. If you’re in the market for one and poor like me, go for a used one.
