xootr swift

hi all, im back from my 2 week holiday in greece and i finally saw my first ever folding bike except mine!

I was expecting to see a folding bike on the way to the airport while i was in manchester or when i was arriving back on the plane but i had no luck.

Although while we were driving back from manchester to my home in west wales we drove through a village called machynlleth which is a couple of miles from my home and i saw a xootr swift out of the corner of my eye while my dad drove past it.

i am sure it was a xootr swift because of the distinctive shape and because i also saw the sign "xootr" on it , i think there was also another folding bike which was burgandy which was also travelling with the xootr and there was also two full size bikes but i only caught a glimpse of them because i was staring at the xootr and they also might of been folders but i doubt it.

Now im just wondering was it anyone here because i would really like to see the bike in person because i havent seen much folding bikes at all and im interested how it folds and its size etc

Get yourself on a trip to Bath and visit Avon Valley cyclery just behind the rail station itself. They stock so many its amazing and also very pelasant staff. Their website is www.foldingbikes.co.uk but they also have bikes in shop not listed on their website such as the Pacific Carryme.

Might miss some German customers by not listing the Carryme on the site
