Apparently David Byrne's primary folding bike is a Montague.

I just bought the book. I think it will be an enjoyable read, mainly because David Byrne has always been an interesting guy.

Byrne's book, The Bicycle Diaries, was interesting, but in a lot of it, I thought he was preaching to the converted. Meaning, I'm already into bikes, so a lot of his observations geared toward them who might think biking or folding bikes is something new, were underwhelming. Still, he's got a unique voice and it was a decent read, especially talking about biking in foreign cities.

Looks like the photo is taken on the chain bridge in Budapest, a city that's a hot spot for cycling.

About half an hour ago, there was an interview with David Byrne, author of "Bicycle Diaries", on the local NPR radio station, WNYC, 820, here in New York.

I missed the start, but I went to the site and found the archives:

It would be the show for October 22nd, although the interview is not in the archive right now, it can be expected within a few hours. ( I suppose they are preparing the audio file for uploading right now).
