    Speed TR folded with Ortleib bag

    Packing for a move and am cleaning, working on, and folding all the bikes up for transport. To my surprise the Speed TR folded up with all kinds of junk hanging off of it. Coffee mug holder, seat bag, and most surprising was the Ortlieb bar bag. I wouldn't in a million years have thought it would fold. It barely touches and the magnets engage fine.

    It's settled. I'm sending this bike in my express shipment rather than the Speed P8.

    No. Only the front light is connected. Back is stock light on the bike. Battery powered.

    Nice bike, and the fold with bag is surprising. What kind of racks are those?

    Just the stock racks that come on the 2008 Speed TR.

    I'm surprised it folded as well. I could fold with one pannier on the outside as well. Might be heavy as heck but this could open up a little longer reach on my mainland Japan rides and train travel.
