    It's peculiar, but attractive. Can you set it free?

    I wish my GoBike looked that forlorn! LOL!

    It looks in great nick & as it has the yatch club logo on it, I'd hazard a guess that it belongs to them.

    I quite like the apearance of disk brakes on fodlers. Er, folders, makes them look quite sporty. Are they hydraulical on the Go Bike?

    On mine the front is still a cable operated disk, I converted the rear to a Hope Mini hydraulic, but before I could fit my Hope hydraulic to the front, the rear started getting air in it all the time. Apparently they are not 'closed system' and should not be stored upside down (What happens when you fold the handlebars down?) Bugger!
