    Ori M9

    I recently bought a black ORI M9 (see http://www.oribikes.com/ori/products...0&cID=1&Key=3#, but I got the previous version with Calliper brakes on both wheels because it was cheaper)
    IMG_0040.jpgIMG_0041.jpgIMG_0042.jpg

    Usage is for a combined commute:
    Bike 7 km house to station - Train for 20 minutes - bike 2.5 km from train station to office. (reverse for the evening return trip)
    (If I'm lazy I can use my local station just 0.5 km away, but then I have to change trains in the middle.)
    This folder replaces my beater bike at the station.

    I did a small test-drive on three bikes at the shop (folding bike specialist : http://www.kemperfietsen.nl/)
    (6 speed Brompton, Ori M9, Birdy World)

    Reasons for choosing the Ori:
    - Value for money.
    - Good ride quality
    - folds easy and small enough.

    I also ordered the Commuter bag ( http://www.oribikes.com/ori/products...2&cID=2&Key=19 )

    Every once in a while those 20's get folded up... had loaned them to some out of town guests and retrieved them from the hotel... funny that people had to come from Britain to ride a British made bicycle.



    They loved the bikes.

    Glad you liked my silly videos Yes, the new light is better than my SSC P7 flashlight.
    The SingFire is a bit brighter and the battery pack lasts much longer.

    So I joined the folding bike crowd again after owning a Citizen Miami Folding bike last year and then went to a 700c single speed bike and now back to folding once again, but powerful enough for more speed on the road!

    This is a Fuji Origami 1.0 folding bike, weighs like 9-10 kg with shimano tiagra cranks and derailleur, detachable pedals, 18 speed. 20 x 1/8" Duro Stinger wheels (on alex rims R450). Bought it in Macau for 5800 MOP (around $725 USD, no tax). now trying to figure out how to bring it back to the US!

    Edit: 1st post lol

    love the folding stem on this bike. you should buy a cheap but durable hard-shell suitcase, break the bike down, put the parts in plastic bags and insulate those parts with your clothes.

    good idea. even tho getting a luggage case is pretty cheap here. plus i would have to buy some tools (cheap too). I was hoping not to do a bit of disassemble work. but if that's the case i'll do it

    Edit: so I've disassembled the wheels, handlebar, and derailleur and stuffed it into an empty Bike Friday box that I took from a LBS. it fits but too much free space, and i felt the Airline won't accept it (let alone I wasn't comfortable putting a Carbon Fork on the floor side). I've been reading around that 30 inch hardshell luggage cases would work for most bikes?

    Just added these three foldies in my stash.



    $300 for all three. I though it is a good deal.

    I'm new to folding bikes, and very new to the forum - and now find myself almost obsessed with folding bikes....just bought my new Brompton H6, Racing Green and put on the rack and Brooks honey saddle...and love it! Asking for any hints on being on the new owner :-)? Thx, Tempest Darcy Green (the name of my new bike - very English name for sure)

    I have a Brompton M6L and a Dahon Speed 8. Both bicycles are great though the Brompton is much more portable...

    Was the matching gold a theme?
    Forrest was a project that spanned some years and there was much blood sweat and gears put into the little guy, the Moulton came to me in it's beautifully restored condition so all I had to do was swap the bars and stem to get it to fit like a glove, today I swapped the Terry saddle for a Wright's leather saddle (that also fits me like a glove) and hung my new Carradice Pendle bag as it matches up so well and is so useful.

    The Moulton has become my daily commuter... I love everything about this bicycle although I am not nearly as attached to it (yet) as I am Forrest who has been part of my life for what must be 6 years.



    Forrest and I will be heading to Oregon in a few weeks... I hope to get in some good rides while I am there and Forrest can handle it all as he has that wider gear range for climbing and pulling stumps.

    Did a 30mi ride last Monday. So far, it has the best ride of all my folder.
    The ride quality off-sets the less compact fold.

    Xootr Swift

    Recently I got a job working in NYC. I commute from PA each day and take the train in to the city and then bike to work from Penn Station. Started out using CitiBike but didn't find it to be reliable enough for my needs and didn't like the bikes very much. Spent a few weeks debating which folder to buy. Lurking on this forum moved me away from the lower end of the scale and I picked the Swift because it sounded like it would be a very reliable commuter. So far I have really enjoyed it! NJ Transit only requires that it be a folder so fold size wasn't an issue so much. I like the quick fold time for the basic fold and can easily move from the three modes of transportation I ride each day. So here is a pic of my new bike.

    Nice looking bike. How well does it fold?

    I usually just pull up the seat post and lift. This causes the rear wheel to fold under. Then drop the seat post for a 10 second fold and go. To make it smaller, you can pull the stem. In order to put it in the back of my Prius with the back seats up, that is what I do. Takes another 10 seconds. I usually drop the back seats and just slide it in. As you can see from the pic I don't even fold it at the office. There are definetly much smaller folds but my only requirement was that is a folder. NJ Transit trains have plenty of room for bikes but if you are going into NYC during rush hours, you have to have a folder. All I do is fold the back wheel under and strap it in place and I am good to go. I don't have experience with any other folders but this bike rides as good or better than my Fuji hybrid. It will flat out move and feels very stable. Speed is important to me as I have a 2.5 hour commute each way and every second counts.
