    I am officially FRED - Warning Dial up'ers.

    Possibly the King.

    Finished the final touches on my Speed P8 today with the coffee cup holder.

    HA! GREAT set up!
    Now I don't think I'll have too much trouble identifying you if/when we run into each other. ; )

    You, sir, are a credit to the folding bike community.

    Now go tell Kaito how to buy multiple folding bikes without getting in too much trouble with SWMBO.

    makes mine look naked in comparison. Wonder how long it takes to fold.
    Avoid bombs, package searches, fear of public transport, or claustrophobia- ride a bike.

    Surprisingly nothing affects the fold. The seat gets angled so no worries there. The only thing I have to do is take the coffee thermos out.

    The handlebars rotate forward anyway so the coffee cup holder is sticking straight up.

    Bike folds just like when it's stock albeit a little heavier depending on what's in the rack bag.

    Next you need to figure out how to fold the bike without spilling the coffee.

    They are the SKS fenders from the Dahon web site. They fit just fine on the Big Apples.

    Cool

    That is a pretty cool setup. If you have an iPhone you can add the new bike mount for it!

    That's a pretty neat set up

    Trek Japan: I`ve been thinking for some time now that you should make your own blog! You post a lo of great stuff, but it is all "disappearing" into the grey masses of posts. With a blog it is easyer to read your posts and keep up with your adventures. How about it?
