    This forum needs a "Guide to Folding Bikes" Sticky

    I'm new to this folding section and know nothing about all the brands out there. I was expecting a sticky that offered an overview and guide to folding bikes. I'm surprised there isn't one. I would do it myself but I don't know jack about folding bikes which is why I'm here. I'm new to this folding section and know nothing about all the brands out there.

    Sorry, once I realized my post came full circle I had to repeat it!

    hi Steve, welcome. There is this facility called google. You could try "folding bike buyers guide", or, to be particularly helpful I would recommend you could try "googling", as it is called "the folding society", and there you will be able to find the kind of thing you are looking for.

    Oh, I was wondering to about your name, but the answer is here http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Macaroni_(fashion) am I right?

    Where I come from a sticky has another meaning, and I am going to get outside one. Cheers !
    it aint the size of your wheels, its the rhythm of you cadence. And I got powergrips too.

    Ahh.. I see. This "google" you speak of... does it also direct one to sites where individuals offer patronizing responses to simple suggestions? If this "google" has such a facility, then by golly I should probably take my sarcasm elsewhere!

    hi Steve, and there you go, thats the problem with written communications, I thought the patronization was coming the other way, what with the repetition and all. And if you google "the folding society", you will actually find what you want....

    This forum definitely needs a sticky for n00bs. Maybe I'll start one. Not right now.
