LIFE WITHOUT FOLDERS....can we survive ?

i think i am having a seller remorse right now. as soon as i got home from work (i rode my tikit and it was such a nice ride. started my day 4:15am and on my way home it was hot but breezy) i went straight to the garage and was so sad to see my Dahon MU XL is gone.....i sure miss my MU. there used to be 3 bikes there all bundled up together. every night i will be there and will wipr them all clean. now there are only 2. pretty soon there will be 1 and then NONE. WAHHHHHH. i could just imagine when all of my folders get sold. what is there for me to do? what would be life without folders ????? i should think and think really hard......

Why not keep at least one? I couldn't imagine being folderless.

keep one, to me it would be silly to sell ALL of them when you do actually need ONE for transportation. Keep the best one in your lot at least you'll still have a bike. Like how much time and space can one folder take up???? I myself only have one folder and my mtn bike is just parts and collecting dust in the basement but that's all I need to get to work.

Meh.... I ditched my folders a while back, don't regret it.

Still, bicycles of almost any type are awfully useful. So unless you have some other bikes kicking around, I'd think you should keep at least one bike.

Don't make me come over there and smack you about the head.

YOU ARE NOT SELLING ALL YOUR BIKES.... GET IT!! YOU ARE NOT SELLING ALL YOUR BIKES.

Now enough of this silly nonsense, I don't want to hear you saying this anymore, 'cos.....
if I do, I'll be on a plane immediately.... and you will get a right good smacking to the head.

ps: Can I have the tikit?

I think you are selling them all so you can get a new Tikit with a hub.
