Hi folks- just before Christmas I was fortunate to hear about a sale at a nearby bike shop which enabled me to buy a fully equipped Grasshopper fx . For those who haven't heard of it this is a German 20/20 folding SWB with a Rohloff hub, hydraulic disk brakes and full suspension. So far I've only ridden about 350 miles on it (the weather is not very conducive to riding far at this time of year over here!) Has anyone out there got one of these machines? If so I would love to hear your experiences and opinions. I was slightly dissapointed with the fold-- although the frame does fold sideways in the middle one would need to remove the RH pedal and probably the tiller/handlebars before getting it down to a size where air travel might be a possibility. I have however managed to get it on the train to and from London on a couple of occasions - but only at off-peak times! It's certainly no Brompton but MUCH more comfortable over longer distances!
I'm all ears!
