Just Ordered ANOTHER Folder & Wife Didn't Complain
Wife realized that when we went back to Vancouver in November (without our BF's cause we can only carry so much stuff) she wouldn't have a bike to ride. I have my Dahon single-speed there, but she has ZIP.
Soooo...I just ordered a new BF Pocket 8 for her to use for our local riding in Vancouver. She thought about whether it would be best to get a tikit or the Pocket 8, and decided upon the latter.
My first thought was possibly a Downtube Nova, but we already have racks and fenders for Fridays, they are easy to work on, we have a good local dealer (Coventry Cycle Works in Portland) and, in the end, I preferred sending the money to Eugene rather than China (Sorry, Yan).
So, now we are even - three bikes apiece! (The cruisers will be sold with the Ventura Place - they are handy for shopping with their large baskets, but they are also real slugs that are hard on our knees.
