    My new favourite Bike Friday Tikit colour!



    I passed through Eugene OR on my way home this week. Got to check out the Bike Friday showroom... This yellow Tikit jumped out of the pile of cool folding bikes like lightning. I love the colour...

    I think the same colour on a 20" Bike Friday might be too much for me, but on the smaller Tikit it's just the right amount of attitude [for me!]...

    These wood fenders are definitely my favourite Bike Friday accessory. Expensive for sure, but the first wooden fenders I've seen and would [pun intended] actually use...

    I love the yellow! So bright and sunny! Although if I could get a Tikit, I think it would be orange.

    What colour are you getting your Tikit painted?

    Can't say yet - waiting for my new Tikit PR rack to be done so I can have a grand unveiling of the new/old Tikit...

    It's not fair to tease us like that, but OK.

    Hmmm.....And you already have an orange tikit, your old one was black or blue. I doubt you'd go for stock colour.... Not yellow, red or wasabi green.... Doubt it's pink...

    I say white or one of the brand new colours. Am I close?

    Your not not close...



    Perhaps I should have gone two tone, but I wanted to keep repainting costs down - especially as this was not req'd and was strictly a vanity move.

    Ooooohhhh.... I'm good, if I may say so myself.

    It's very pretty, good choices.

    I can feel folderitis kicking in... I want a tikit!

    I think Vik is getting the power rasberry color. My favorite BF color is the Merlot II shade, but the price premium for that color was a little too high for me.

    Maybe my next Tikit I'll have to ask Bike Friday if they paint each tube a separate colour so I rock a rainbow pallet of folding bike goodness...

    I like that yellow A LOT! But I think it might clash with my lime green safety jacket.

    Vik, I happen to know what color your Tikit is...your front rack will match perfectly!
