The N-A 27 is the smallest text you will find new, but the older N-A 26 is smaller while still having essentially the same notes; the text is identical. Even smaller is the N-A 25. The apparatus on the 25 is a bit different from the 26 & 27, but the text is essentially the same.

Both of them have a cloth cover, but should travel well. I bike to work everyday (about 5.5 miles one way), and have never had a problem; my biggest problem is I end up spilling tea on the pages :( and that has nothing to do with the bicycle.

The dimensions on the 26th are 6 3/8 x 4 1/2 x 7/8. The dimensions on the 25th are even smaller:
6 1/4 x 4 1/4 x 3/4. It seems that each edition gets larger, but the difference in the text size is minimal.

I have a copy of the 25th in stock:

Beware searching on the ISBN of the 26th, it will bring up the 27th edition at many places (which is why I didn't even give it here). The best thing would be to see one in person, or talk to the person selling it to make sure you are getting what you think you are.

Hope that helps,

It's a little larger than you specified, but I don't think you'll find a critical text much smaller.
You could get a Textus Receptus about the same size somewhat cheaper, but I consider the text basis as being deficient.  Also, it is hard cover which wouldn't be as conducive to the use you describe.

I need a really rugged Greek New Testament. I plan of carrying this
around with me everywhere. I commute by bicycle and ferry and my things
will often get crushed when they are packed tight. I also plan on using
this during bicycle tours, so it needs to be extra flexible, small and
light. I'm also fine with tiny font.

I am currently wanting to get into Greek, and am using a compact ESV.

Ideally this
( http://www.amazon.com/Compact-TruTone-Diamond-Design-Letter/dp/1581346050/ref=pd_sim_b_img_6 ) exact size would be perfect since it would be going into a pocket at times.

This is my first post, but I'm sure it won't be my last. Thank you.
