    I bought another folder!

    Hi Chaps & Chappesses

    I was in Hamburg and saw a 'Falter' 26" wheeled single speed folder in a classic bike shop.
    It is now back in Blighty, in nice original condition, even tools in the toolbag, needs cleaning up and a new lock, it rides very nicely.
    Pics to follow when I've rested after driving from Paris today.

    Falter..... the name of a bike company in Germany ..I think it was Cologne ?
    is somewhat missleading when u talk about a folder .... or FALTrad ..ie.. ein falter .... verb is : falten ...
    in this case however it means Butterfly ... or "falter" and nothing to do with folding

    just saying
    cool find
