    Nice bike by the way.

    Thanks for the hint - it does seem to be coming from the right front brake arm.

    I recently acquired this 1969 Raleigh Twenty w/Sturmey Archer 3speed.I got it from a really nice old retired couple.They had heard that I collect old bikes and gave it to me.The bike is absolutely spotless.Not a blemish.Other than having the wrong tire on it, it's mint.The picnic basket detaches.Really fun to ride.Just gotta change the front tire.The red bmx tire just doesn't cut it.The Raleigh Twenty is a SOLID road bike.You can't put a Strida in the same category.

    Brand New 2007 Dahon Speed P8

    Two days old. The squishy saddle has been replaced by a comfortable Brooks B.17.
    The plastic pedals are next to go. No, the front panniers don't affect handling much
    & the bike is better balanced with extra weight in the front to off-set my flabby butt
    in the back.

    Ooh! That's pretty! How easy is it to remove the front panniers when you want to fold?

    It's real easy - the clamps snap open & the bags lift off the rack. See Carradice's C System Hooks here...

    True! But seriously, who would? The Strida is a great FOLDING bike; you can't put the R20 in the same category.

    I have them both, and have done my commute on both. The R20 is wonderful bike, vintage cool, versatile, and it's a pleasure to ride to the train station. And I CAN take it on a rush-hour commuter train, how cool is that! But I don't take it on the train very often; on the train I take, there are only two seats per rail car where I can sit with my folded R20, and handicapped persons have priority seating at those spots.

    The Strida does not ride as well, is that a surprise? But it's fine for my 2.5-mile ride through Manhattan. Once folded, I can put it on the overhead rack on the train and I can sit anywhere I want. By my estimation the train car seats about 240 people, two R20's, and maybe 20 Stridas, all comfortably.

    I get on the train, stow the Strida overhead, and forget about it. I can relax, sleep, or read. I can't forget about the R20 on a crowded train; it's always in the way, so I can't fully relax. Yes, I'd rather ride an R20 than a Strida. But I'd rather ride a train with a Strida.

    RE:name your bike

    Here is mine.

    I don't have a name for it. I used it this last week for my commute. I am interested in if I can put a Brooks saddle on one of these.

    Thanks.

    hmm?

    What to call it, what to call it? I have it,Call it Red! Of course it won't call you dumb--- or threaten to put it's pedal up your butt but that is a good thing.You wouldn't like it if it acted like Red Foreman from that 70's show.And ,yes of course you can put a Brooks saddle on it.It has a standard seatpost clamp .I would suggest a B67.

    wow, where did you get that bike?
    And how much does it weight?
    Used to ride BMC SLC01, CAAD, FELT, Cervelo P3 but now I ride FUJI SST and TCR advanced and CAAD9.

    Check out the more recent Mobiky Review thread.

    USA dealer list is here

    I got mine at a Sharper Image store since there are no bike shop dealers in my home state of Massachusetts and I wanted to see the bike and test ride it before buying. If you're in NY I recommend David Lam at Bfold.

    What size wheels are those? The co-op has a frame exactly like that one for sale. May just have to get it! Yours is pretty.

    Rollfast Mustang

    This frame on the bike comes apart completely rather than folding up.
    I believe it's early 60s and all original.

    My Moulton FX8... Mine is fixed frame but detachable split-frame is an option



    I am surprised there aren't more Brompton or Bike Friday on BF. I also would like to have a Moulton Bridgestone or/and a Birdie

    Early Dahon

    I have one just like the one in post #339. The name I'm considering for it is "Pound Puppy". Anybody know where the serial number is located? I have yet to find it, but the SA hub is dated 7-87. Hard to ride it without giggling, it's just so doggone cute!
