foldr on flickr - a new group for retro folding bike pictures

Hi there - I've just set up an interest group on flickr so people with pictures of retro folding bikes - Dawes, Raleigh, Puch, U-frames, Peugeots etc can see pictures, discover new people/bikes and share their own.

Groups on flickr (a really clever photo-sharing site for those that don't know) offer mini-forums and gallery space so photographs around a general theme can be grouped and viewed together.



I've called the group foldr in an homage to the site (natch) and hope that people here who often share their wisdom/tips/photos might consider contributing...

Link to group here

I think it's a given that non-folding twenty's are welcome.... I'm impressed at how many people have already posted. Lots of intriguing pictures - yay!

Hello Little Pixel

At the computer at work I cannot see the bicycles I have posted in foldr, but at home I can see my bicycles in both Windows and Linux. Most probably I cannot see also the bicycles of other people. Do you have any explanation why only in some computers I can see my bicycles?

Cookies? Not logged in? Sounds a little strange but I don't have a useful answer I'm afraid..
