    Two New Folding Bike Web Sites Available Now

    I am very pleased to announced the completion of both of my interrelated Web sites entitled "World Of Folding Bicycles." Flickr is hosting my photos and Geocities is hosting my more traditional text based site.

    To visit both of my Web sites:

    At Geocities: www.geocities.com/folder_fanatic

    At Flickr: www.flickr.com/people/world-of-folding-bicycles for my home page to photos.

    or

    www.flickr.com/photos/world-of-folding-bicycles to go directly to my photos.

    >>>>And the two folders offer the best protection against theft than any bike I had before. And I still ride the same hilly area that I covered with the road bikes with ease with the three speeds. I just carefully plan the chain-ring/cog ratio far more carefully at purchase for the terrain I use the bike on.<<<<

    What combination of chain-ring/cog ratio do you use? If you drop to a 49 Direct drive (2nd gear), 1st gear will only take you to 36 or inches (or somewhere around there) which I consider high for hills. Just curious.

    I know of only one other person who replaced their derailuer system on the Boardwalk. My first Piccolo was falling apart but the Sturmey Archer 3 speed hub was working like a charm.

    I still like derailuers for hills and light touring but I'm happy to have a Presto 3 speed again.

    Thanks for putting up this information, folder fanatic. It must have taken you some time to put it altogether. Much appreciated.

    Congrats on getting your website up-and-running.

    Nice of you (and a good idea) to provide a link to this area of bikeforums too.

    Great that you've put in the effort. I look forward to spending a bit of time reading it all. Kind of puts the bomb behind me I need to get the FAQs pages on my twenty site sorted out too. Good work!

    Similar yet a bit different for each bike. For the Dahon, I have a 14t cog and a 44t chainring, For the Brompton, it is 13t cog and 46 chainring, and my old Phillips, a standard cog for that day (I am not too sure what it is exactly except that it works for me. I am not a very powerful rider, but I don't have any problem with the Dahon, I am thinking in the future to replace the Brompton rear cog to a 16t or even 18t and leave everything else alone.
