Why don't people just use the bike forums photo attachment facility?

Yes, me too! Makes me want to come to Malaysia and go riding myself. I love that people there think folders are just normal bikes, and not some weird little toy that is only good for a half-mile ride to the train station. That seems to be how most people in the US regard folders. The Tern Eclipse looks great. I saw one in my local REI and thought it would be a great commute bike. What were your impressions of it?

Maybe because can't delete them once they're up? I know that's my reason.


I love your journals as well, Samo.

Samo, as usual great write up. Looking forward to another ride.

The Eclipse is definitely a head-Tern-er..... (pardon the pun). looks like it does serve more than a city commuter for long distance usage.

Regards,
Uncle Mui
