    that's a beautiful bike.

    3 weeks ago, I got my first folder, a Cayne Rambler. I didn't know folding bikes even existed until the gas crisis. I started researching user friendly bikes and kept seeing ads... My bike shop didn't even know much about them. I was their first sale. I'm sort of proud of that.

    Have made a few modifications (i.e. spongy saddle, lights, etc.).

    I purchased two folding bikes today, one is a brown Raleigh Twenty with the 406mm wheels, the other one is also a Raleigh of the same colour and mostly the same appearance, but it just says Raleigh on it, and has 451mm wheels.

    They're both really nice and in perfect shape. Now I see the fuss about the Twenties. And they were $100, together

    Thanks...

    Although it's not mine I have been riding it a fair bit... it's a really nice ride even though it is a little stiffer than my Phillip's 20.

    It tows the trailer really nicely and my girls really like it when we all ride the English 3 speeds.

    I just got my new Biomega/Puma "Glowrider", so I don't have any photos of my own yet:



    Have to say I love it, can't say its the fastest, most comfortable/easy, lightest bike i've ever ridden, but there is just something about it that makes it amazing, can't really give any logical or practical reasons though. I guess the fact that I cycle alot at night justifies the glow paint, anyway just wanted to share.

    Hi all.

    Mine is a Bike-Friday Pocket Rocket. It is my second BF. My first was the metro. I'm a freight pilot that gets to do a lot of weekend layovers. So I've gotten a lot of use and packing experience. I can break it down or unpack and assemble it in 10 minutes or less.


    This is my current Pocket Rocket with an unusual water bottle configuration that has been working quite well.


    This was my BF metro. It was my first folder.

    I've done a few mods that make packing and assembly go faster and easier. Here are a couple...


    This is a plug I soldered into the computer's cable. I just unplug and leave the wheel sensor mounted. The fork sensor is low profile and to date has not gotten snagged on anything. I just roll the cable around the handlebars and secure with velcro. The computer mount and cable remain on the handlebars. The computer slides off the mount and gets placed in a bag with a few other accessories.


    I don't pack or use a rear rack because it is too much hassle to pack. Each time you would want to use it there are six screws to deal with. The rack is also bulky and hard to fit into my suitcase. So I evaluted my needs and decided the most I would ever need is something like a trunk bag. So I just decided to buy the Carradice Super-C saddlepack. It has roughly the same capacity and did not need a rack or saddle loops to mount. The original straps worked OK, but occasionally would slide over the fender washers that Carradice used in their design. I repaired this twice and then decided to try something new. I ordered a Klick Fix kit from Jandd.com and attached it to the bag. Since Klick Fix does not technically fit a Brooks saddle, I had to modify it a little. The pic above shows this well. Now the bag rides better with no swaying and installs/removes in about two seconds. I cut off all the straps but left the buckles. I plan to use these as lashing points for a jacket or something.


    These are the MKS quick release pedals. Once installed they take only seconds remove/install. I use power grips because they are the closest thing to clipless that I have found. This way I don't have to pack extra shoes. This combo has worked great!!


    After getting tired of having to readjust my handlebars after each assembly, I added these marks. Once I got the bars exactly how I wanted them, I used an automatic center punch to create marks on the handle bar and on the stem. Now when I put my bike together I just align those marks and off I go.

    I have other ideas/philosophies but I'll save those for another more appropriate time.

    Oh yea... My other bike is a Rivendell Rambouillet. As seen on my signature line.
    Flying an airplane is really very simple...Push the stick forward, the house gets big. Pull the stick back, the house gets small. Keep holding the stick back, the house gets big again.

    Have had my Birdy Red (7spd) for a couple of years now, and went for a NEW Birdy Touring last year in white with 24 speed. The difference in gearing on long trips is amazing. The 7 spd just isn't up to the job for anything over 'city' moving. Has anyone upgraded the gears? I'm tempted to go for the same set-up as I've got on the Touring as it's great. I do love the original 'Red' though.

    I have a Raleigh Twenty that is currently at the powdercoater and awaiting a Phil Wood Bottom Bracket. I've taken it on Bike Virginia, RAGBRAI and from Ottawa to Quebec on CycleCanada. After having trouble with the cottered crank I came to believe it needed a proper modern crank. Since I had it apart I decided that it was a good time to get it painted.

    It also has a replacement fork with clearance for fatter tires and that allows canti brakes. I'll post pictures as I get it finished.

    That is an awesome little bike.
    It looks like it should be ridden by a WWII paratrooper!

    The Carryme almost looks like it is gambolling through the meadow amongst all the flowers by itself lol

    What is a colour-matching perfectionist like you Somna doing with pink appendages on a red bike?!!! You need to get its style up to your Brommie standards!
