This is the Reach I have had since January. I believe I got the first Reach IF that came into the UK. The Reach was always a great bike but taking off the wheel to fold it wasn't for me. It's an entirely different story with Mark Sander's IF folding mechanism integrated into the Reach. I get a very firm ride because of the tensioning leaver that locks into place. The gears shift lovely and the brakes are very responsive. It is definitely one very fast bike. The fold is also compact and fast and it rolls very nice. All in all I'm thrilled with this excellent bike. Pictures below:
I bought machined pedals made in Taiwan fro m a UK eBay seller. They look great and even were in a matching blue. Apart from that they are light with a great grip using the screws to achieve this. I never get any slippage on these.
