    Thanks for the BF purchase advice

    I wanted to take a moment to thank you all for helping me make the decision on my new Bike Friday. I bought the Pocket Pilot, with 105 componentry and the Chris King head set. When the bike arrived it was quite out of tune. I was unable to get the rear derailleur properly adjusted. Also, both front and rear brifters were difficult to shift. I tried a few adjustments myself, but just couldn't get it working correctly. Bike Friday was very generous and offered to pay for a tune up tune at my LBS. Well it came home the other day and I am very happy. I've attached a couple photos of my new baby. Thanks again.

    I am filled with envy and jealousy! Beautiful bike and the exact componentry I would want. Enjoy,
