While I certainly wouldn't want to try a century (100 miles) on it, this micro-folding bicycle might just be perfect to get you from the Metro to your destination without requiring the bus. Of course, since it's not outrageously expensive and made out of stuff the Department of Defense doesn't even know exists, it's quite passe to me.

That looks pretty cool. I wouldn't use it for my commute to work, but it could be handy for those days when I ride the Metro. Not that I plan on getting it mind you.
At ~ $350, it's not even very expensive. Giant makes well-regarded folding bikes, but they cost at least twice as much.
With those itty-bitty wheels, it looks like you could walk faster and hitting any bumps is likely to cause an Endo (or a nasty case of crotchitis barhittis.
Not to mention being called "teh ghey".
