Got a new Bike Friday...



Got the call from the UPS store yesterday that I had a box to pick up...I was out on my Surly Big Dummy so I rolled on over...



Even in a big packing box a Bike Friday loads easily onto my Big Dummy...



I need to install a couple items and take some photos before I let the cat out of the bag.

But, if I'll dig through my parts bin and send out something nice to anyone who guesses the correct type of Friday, the general setup/spec and the colour...

That's not it, but that was one of the options I considered so I'll try and dig something out for you... I like how you think...

I have been watching Viks bikes and I thought with what I have read that may be it.
Tikit single speed two tone.

BF and BD

There is a video on YouTube in which the order of the bikes obtained are reversed to Vic's. It is a girl who took delivery of a BF Tikit very recent before picking up her new Surley Big Dummy. She rode to the bike shop on the BF, and wound up folding it, and carrying it back home on the new BD. Really cool!

BTW - I haven't forgotten about my prize offer! I'm just coming up with nothing worth spending the $15-$20 on shipping to get from Canada to the US. So why don't you find something from your LBS for $20 and I'll paypal you for your frighteningly accurate guesses?... That way we don't give USPS/Canada Post the $$$.
