    These are not my bikes but I want to share them anyways because I have never seen these before until I went to Tokyo...

    They almost look like mini-cargo bikes!

    Forrest got his spring clean and polish, some new tyres, and a new chain and is running great.

    I have been riding around on my other Twenty (Grace) a fair bit and just took an order to build another just like her albeit with a 3 speed coaster hub in the rear which solves the braking issue quite nicely.

    I think I could sell every R20 / P20 folder I got my hands on as they are becoming immensely popular here and they are abundant... Raleigh made more 20 inch bikes than any other model.

    Hi All,

    New on here. Previous bikes include a Pashley Moulton APB S7 separable and as a kid several years on an indestructible Dawes Kingpin Junior (non folder), but no genuine folders until I bought my new Pacific Reach the other week, identical to this except mine has a rack (which folds with the bike and acts as a stand- clever) mudguards (the front one of which stops you folding the bike- not clever) and I have already had a 42T chain ring etc. fitted next to the original 56T to help me get up the gradients in my local area of Cornwall:



    Using the search function gives me the impression I am the first owner of a Reach on here? But somehow I doubt it...

    I took The Girl's Twenty down to the shop today to install some new brake levers and gave it a thorough polishing so that it just glows.

    The XT levers, new front brake, alloy wheels, and Kool Stop pads have come together really nicely to give this bike some pretty decent stopping power and the ride is fabulous.

    I figured it warranted some better pictures...

    Thought I'd post my Flyby. Took this photo at Hollywood Highland. It wasn't the clearest day, but you might be able to make out the Hollywood sign in the background. Took a bus, rode the orange bus line then the metro Red line to get there. Multi mode is great.



    Waiting for the part for the recall.

    ALAN vitesse, work in progress.


    Food for thought: if you aren't dead by 2050, you and your entire family will be within a few years from starvation. Now that is a cruel gift to leave for your offspring. ;)

    I was wondering about something simular doing to a curve.I am considering fitting the drops upsidedown and then cut them down into lowprfile type(bullhorns?). Then i can use the QR on the handle bar stem to point them downwards for folding. Hopefully folding them inside the two frame sections. Anyone done this , any problems ?

    Could work. Problems may arise with brake levers and probably with shifters.

    I can think of sticking the bullhorns through the spokes. Might work if you have tiny brake levers (not STI). And shifters that do not get in the way of the wheels. The beauty of this idea is that it does not require to use any of the handlebar quick releases.

    might work better with other models. it doesn't seem possible to get the drop bars to work with this 07' vitesse when folded, even with a chopped steerer.

    the grip shift being mounted in that position doesn't help at all, but the bars would go under the wheels when folded.

    I sort of use this method already on my mezzo with bull horns and STI. I need a front wheel with less spokes ideally, but have not got round to this yet.
    I love to see if it can be done better on the curve

    Just taken the Pacific Reach for its longest ride so far, 53 miles around Cornwall up (and down!) some pretty severe gradients and it was excellent, only problem being a slight tendency to lift the front wheel when pushing up a steep hill, but compensated by leaning well forward for the worst one which appeared about 1:4 :shock: . My old APB Moulton was worse for this, as well as bouncing up and down at the front with every pedal stroke on the hills: the Reach never bounced in the slightest. I think some front panniers would be quite desirable on the Reach for touring though and will take a little fettling to fit to the unusual trailing link fork.
