Love your folder...



So I'm coming up on 3 years as a Bike Friday Tikiteer and to be honest I feel like I've become so used to the capabilities of my Tikit that I don't appreciate her as much as I did when new... I know that's wrong so I decided yesterday to document all that she does for me during a typical day.

Here's my typical Tikit day....

Whatever folding bike you ride...next time you fold or unfold her give her a little extra love and let her know that she still rocks your world...

vik, quick question on that brass bell. Does it rings everytime you hit a small bump on the road? I recently got one from BF and it rings everytime. I feel like an ice cream seller after a few minutes on the bike...

I had the same problem with the Season Tikit I got last fall. I quickly replaced the bell with an Incredibell XL. No problems since.

My bell is silent unless I choose to ring it.
