I just bought 2 Avenir folding bikes this past week or so. And so far am very impressed riding mine around. I think it is in some ways more comfortable than my mountain bike. But I think it needs a gear adjustment on the one I ride as 2 of the gears don't seem to settle in exactly. Hopefully the shop where I got them can adjust it so that all 6 gears are smooth. We will be using them mostly for taking when we RV, but I can think of other times to use it, like riding to the (Toronto) Islands.
Nice forum. I read lots of stuff on it before I bought them.
