Folders reviewed in Bicycle Times magazine

Just got my Bicycle Times magazine, they have 3 folding bikes reviewed. They take a look at the Dahon IOS, a Brompton S6L and aXootr Swift.

...and, Brompton has had full-page adds in several recent issues.

The only Bike Friday I've seen in he Mag was a "How We Roll" rider profile several months ago. Would be a good place for tikit promotion, IMO. I mentioned this publication to BF in early 2010. With a bit of disruption in their marketing dept. this last year (first Lynette leaving, and then the newly hired Mktng Mgr leaving after six months), I think they might have missed an opportunity.

We enjoy Bicycle Times.

Note: To those of you that are super observant, yes, we have one less bicycle now - the red, 1970's Huffy has been donated to Goodwill to clear some room in our one-car Ventura garage. Soon the red, Dahon S1 will be given to 13 yr old grandson, because he is only member of his family without a folder - his road bike takes up too much room in their SUV (his parents both have Fridays. He has little room to complain about it being a single-speed since his hobby is Track Racing (Velodrome).

Here's the link to the Bicycle Times website, but you'll have to purchase a copy of the current issue to read the article. I've seen copies being sold at Performance Bike.
