I don't know how rare folders are around where other forumers live, but they sure are rare here. I have only seen folders a hand-full of times. So imagine my surprise to see a Reach this weekend! I was waiting in a bakery for my wife to pick me up after my R20 geared hub broke (see my other thread), and spotted a couple outside on 20" bikes. He was riding a 20" recumbent and she was on a Reach, the flat-bar version. I went outside for a chat; it turns out they were looking for a friend whose bike had a Brooks B17 saddle, they saw mine and came to investigate. She bought the Reach for a paltry $800, it was a demo model. Bargain! The suspension felt very stiff, just right for a road bike, and it felt very light.
They were quite knowledgable about folding bikes in general, in fact the guy instantly recognised mine as a R20 despite only the frame being original. It's rare meeting people like that.
