cycling from Budapest to Krakow

hello all, we are planning to ride from Budapest to Krakow, end of July - not necessarily the 'Amber Trail' for which there are companies providing assisted tours, as it looks like they pick and choose sections with some minibus connections (to avoid heavy traffic in some cases). I would like to ask...

thank you for all your suggestions / advice - I did look into New England / Quebec [even bought a cycling book covering this area] but, I have to say, the publicity material makes cycling there look uninspiring as all the photos are of cyclists with a backdrop of well groomed tarmac - no dramatic sc...

brompton folding pedal??

has anyone tried to replace bearings on the folding pedal? - mine has dislocated from the crank bolt and it doesn't appear at all possible to fit new bearings!

or does anyone have good words about the MKS Fd-6 alternative??

thanks, Stefano
