Fast Folding Showdown [video]
Nice vid of some of our fave folders in a slightly unscientific speed folding test.
Useful to see how this motley array of bikes actually fold.
(I'd never seen a Moulton or Xootr Swift being folded before)
Tried and failed to embed vid into page but here's the link anyway.
Cool! David Lam sure knows what he's doing, and of course he had a bunch of bikes to chose from, since he sells several different models. Still, someone with a Strida could have been a contender....
All ur bike r belong Enki
If the seat post on the Swift had only been lubed properly (see my posts in the Swift thread), he wouldn't have had such a hard time sliding it out of the seat tube (and resorting to the swivel-twist method, which chews-up the seat post).
Fun video. You didn't miss chain-drops? Many of them, and could be avoided by better design I believe.
Yup, I'm sure glad I have Strida!
What a great competition! Hope it grows more prominent over time.
Beats the heck out of a hot dog stuffing contest...
Good show. Now I want to see one of those hinged European tandems entered in this event.
