Actualy not at all. Next time you drive your car thru a downtown area check your average speed! The monorail runs in a fairly narrow valley and end-to-end beats busses, taxis and cars hands down; especially during rush hour or in the winter time. What is a better solution in your opinion?
To catch up with something you generally have to be going much faster than the target. Particularly if the target has a head start. In the case of an aircraft the difference in altitude also adds to the the head start.
Not strictly a mini velo, but smaller than your typical road bike (22" wheels). It's fun to ride, light and manoeuvrable.
Issues you might run into are gearing (smaller wheels = lower gearing) so don't expect to be able to go as fast as a bike with bigger wheels. Then there's ground clearance, my pedals and crank arms have plenty of scrapes either from riding too close to curbs or not lifting the pedal enough whilst cornering.
>>892177 I suppose it could be viewed as a half assed compromise between the two. A shopkeeper who might object to a full size bike in the aisles might not say anything if it's a mini velo. Or on a moderately full train, where a regular bike would be a no-go, it might work with a minivelo.
Plus a mini velo can be made at a lower cost than a folder, since it's less complex.

Oddly enough the retrogrouch fad is one fad that doesn't bother me at all. Simple, classy looking bikes are always good, if some people want to blow huge sums of money on simple, classy looking bikes I don't see the problem.

>>899977 Baconrider is not a he, not is it a she. It is best classified as "it," and is a being far greater than a mundane human being. It is omnipotent, and all seeing. It watches lovingly over /n/, posting whenever the need arises.
>>897604 >To be honest I say give him a job instead of sending him to jail, whether that is a train driver or a bus driver. yea, that would be great he won't follow the simplest of rules, so let's put him in charge of the safety of a bunch of other innocent people what could possibly go wrong ......... nah, jail's good. I'd rather just lock him up 2X as long as the previous time, every new offense.
