    Carry Me now in the UK

    I went to the Cycle Show at Earls Court in London at the weekend and there on the Airnimal stand was the Carry Me bike. For 259 pounds they have the single speed, and for an extra 100 pounds you can have a two speed model, with a schlumph type arrangement in the bottom bracket. All in all a very neat bike, and according to Airnimal they will be in the country and available in a week or two.

    No, Pacific (that is Pacific Cycles, not Pacific Cycle) manufactures the Airnimal (and also the Birdy) on contract. I'm not sure exactly what the difference is between these and Pacific's own brand of bikes (Reach, Carryme, etc), but it doesn't seem to be much (in fact, lately the Pacific website has been listing the Birdy as part of the Pacific brand).

    Yeah, but (and this is the same argument we have over and over around the forum) unless you're David Beckham you're going to have to get that package in contact with your hands in order to move it, which means you're in for a lot of bending and a lot of heavy lifting.

    Small is good, but a convenient shape is better. That's why suitcases aren't cubes because even though for a given amount of materials a cube gives more volume than any other rectangular solid it's awkward to carry. No matter big or small, suitcases are never cubes because the little bit of extra volume is never worth the inconvenience. Ironic that here we have thousands of years of wisdom about building luggage and most folding bike manufacturers (even the venerable Brompton) ignore it, even though they are, in fact, just as much luggage manufacturers as they are bicycle manufacturers!

    Oy vey. Sometimes I wish all the recreational cyclists and racing cyclists would just quit. Then maybe the manufacturers would put some effort into their designs instead of cranking out the same old costume accessories year after year (let's face it, to a racing cyclist, a bicycle is just an accessory to his Lance Armstrong costume) that the recreationalists need to play their silly games.

    Good point makeinu

    Thats also one of the main reasons I like the strida as well (as well as no chain). They seem well designed to fit a 'multi-mode' (I dislike that phrase so much lol) trips.

    I think I'm going to have to pick up a 2 speed Carry Me in the next couple of months
