    We have a couple of Montagues that we travel with. Good bikes. We got them after our 10 year old Dahons were stolen in Ottawa, Canada in 2004. Those were also good bikes.

    Folding 24

    Could not identify this bicycle when I got it. Had it painted and replaced some parts. New tires, rims, spokes, pedals and reflector. I just identify this bike as "Sunsilk Pink".

    Have been taking Forrest out a good deal to get him ready for a fixed century... I have Schwalbe Marathons on order and hope to get them on next week as they will roll just as fast and further improve what is already a really decent ride.

    That... and I won't worry so much about all the glass I have been finding of late.

    cobrabyte - 20's are always such a nice find and I have hooked up two people this week with really nice examples.

    You have probably already discovered how craptastic the stock brakes are... the long reach bmx brake on my fixed Twenty cost 15.00 and works great with Kool Stop pads (and an alloy front wheel)

    name my bike prob a newbie hear

    Hello all. Just joined this forum, I believe again. I think I joined several years ago but cant remember for sure. LOL
    well I bought the Sun folding bike several years ago. I really like it. Matter of fact I bought the semi recumbent Giant REVIVE at the same time. I rode the Revive maybe three times. It has been hanging up in the garage ceiling for years. I need to sell it If I cant find a way to turn it into a TRIKE.
    I find as Im getting older I am not as stable as I used to be.
    Thanks all
    Jean

    This is my Xootr Swift that has featured on the Swift forum over the last three years. Still pretty standard appart from lower gearing and the addition of a rack and mudguards. I haven't given it a name for some reason but it is by far my favourite bike. As you can see from the two photo's, I like to change the set up every now and again. The top photo is the latest - at least it was until I replaced the 'bar grips and ends with Ergon grips - yesterday!

    I regularly tow a Burley D'Lite with 2 kids on my Dahon Impulse (7 speed with Megarange gearing) Michigan is fairly flat, I guess. I have it directly mounted to the rear hub shaft.

    Just picked up this 2007 MuSl. It is the lightest bike that I have owned.



    I have since changed out the grips and brake levers.

    Clown Bike

    Have you ever had someone ask about your "Clown Bike"? I have always found the smiles and jokes about these "little" bikes one of the perks of riding a folder. I added a 2006 Dahon Mariner D7 to my stable of folders and was out test riding it today when I came across Ronald McDonald during the closing day of the Savannah Jazz Festival.

    I couldn't pass this chance by, so I asked him to pose on my Clown Bike. I thought everyone might enjoy this photo.

    This one is not the folder, but if you go to csepel bicycles it shows the folder version. ( I think they just cut the frame and weld in the hinge. )

    Random, Google pic :

    My bike - 85 Raleigh Twenty Shopper

    Apologies this one doesn't fold - I now have three that do. Thought you might be interested in the modifications anyway as they are applicable to all Raleigh Twenty based bikes. I also have a Sinclair A bike - that I bought to see how well it worked. It just didn't. This one I built for my girlfriend - then someone pinched my saddle and I had to ride this to work - been on it ever since. Then bought three more. This one has a Nexus seven speed, I've got a folder with a flip flop hub, another with a Shimano three speed and another with original Sturmey three speed and chrome rims. Tyres are 27 x 451 and ok for 115 psi so fairly quick. Gearing on low side - it'll get up anything but you have to coast down hill. This has a TA Specialites BB spindle with the original bearings and cups - I cut 3mm off the shell on the non-drive side. Suntour Superbe Pro cranks and chainwheel. It's now got Eggbeaters. Original bag, rack, saddle and calipers. Photos of folders as I finish them.. This bike likes to pop out to get milk. My road bike used to hate that.

    It looks tough with those black rims - lovely contrast to the trad champagne paintwork. I love how you've kept the white seat and white plastic grips.

    As a point of interest to other UK twenty fans- where'd you get the black 451 rims? In my experience they're as rare as hen's teeth.

    Look forward to seeing more of it - and perhaps the other *3* folders you have in the pipeline - maybe they deserve their own thread?

    We've got 2 Airnimal Joeys in white. Feels like a full size bike, very comfortable and quick. 2 Bikes fit into the boot easily (VW Jetta, well it is an enormous boot, 500+litres). http://www.airnimal.eu/Joey/Explore.php

    This clown bike (strida) is my daily ride and I find it rides soo much smoother and better than my full size bike I can't even go back to a standard bike. The convenience and small size is what sold me on this, I Basically ride 6km to work fold it up and shove it under my desk. It's initially expensive but it's basically paying for itself from not having to pay a monthly parking ($175 cdn a month!). I chose this over the others cause it was such a weird looking bike and I'm never one to conform with how a normal bike should look.

    Pic is bad cause I took it with my Iphone at work.

    Not sure if I've posted this before or not?
    I saw a Moulton MK3at a flee-market yesterday and passed on it - it needed alot of work. After thinking about it further, I should have snatched it up...aw well.

    This is my Rollfast Mustang - breakaway...

    Lead me not towards temptation, for I shall find it myself !
