    Hoorah! It's "Spezi" time again!

    Hi fellow folderoonies

    It's that Spezi time of year again and 15 able Foldies, my goodself and our 2nd driver will leave, in my sleeper bus, tomorrow to another fabulous adventure in deepest Germany.
    One intrepid soul has ridden there and is joining us on our arrival.
    I popped in to see that nice man Mark Sanders last night, he has kindly loaned me some bikes for us to try out :-

    A 2-speed, 18" wheel Strida with the new adjustable saddle

    An early Swivelhead prototype (fore-runner to the iF range) which is very light & nimble

    One of ten iF Modes that was made with a double freewheel (allows it to be pushed in either direction when folded, without snagging the pedals)

    And a diminutive Pacific Carry-Me

    I will be posting lots of pics etc in the near future.

    Wish there was room to take you all!

    Thanks for all your good wishes! For any of you that have never heard of "Spezi", it is an annual show for 'Spezi-alised' bikes, trikes & velomobiles & it's held in the beautiful German town, Germersheim.

    Here are a few pics of our 'try-out' ride near my girlfriend's house :-

    Unfortunately, due to a 5 week tour in Europe with Pendragon, I was not able to take the Velonauts this year ;0( So thanks for the great pics.
