    Another Ignio Bike Pic - Ride report

    Short ride report. This bike doesn't suck especially with the Thudbuster and flat handlebar. There's probably only so much that should be done to a $150 bike but this bike screams "Upgrade"

    Hey John,

    Didn't you buy the Ignio for your daughter? Shouldn't she be writing the review on the Ignio?

    Anyway, all kidding aside, I am pondering on upgrades for my $120.00 Flying Pigeon folder. I don't know if I'll ever go as far as getting a Thud Buster for it, but you never know.

    Cheers,
    Edward

    Edward,

    I've been watching your FP threads. Your bike looks a lot like mine frame wise. Looks like your fork has a more pronounced curve as does the the bar about the crank to the top tube. Other than that I bet your frame got cranked out of the same place mine did maybe a different year or something.

    Also the wheels look the same. Mine originally came with Kenda tires.

    Mine doesn't have a threaded boss for a rack either. Close but maybe no cigar.

    John,

    This frame design is quite common across many brands, including Dahon as well. It's hard to tell if FP's factory buys bicycle frames from other sources or not. Traditionally, they manufacturer their own bicycle frames.

    It must mean that this is a good design I guess.

    Other than a new, and longer seat post, which is on it's way (not a TB), there is not much more that I'll do to upgrade the FP. It's a great bike just as it is.
