My geared bike is 2x8-speed Claris, and I feel no need to have more gears.
My folder has the same with a gear range of 27" - 108". It's very OK (except for luggage lugging up hills) but I do miss a triple. I think I'd rather have a 7 - 3 set up than an 8 - 2. I find the constant switching between two chain rings irksome when really i just want to be somewhere in the middle. But like i said on the folder thread, I don't know the whys and wherefores of the choice of set up.
