    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.

    So much happiness pours from these pictures in your journals. They always make me want to go ride that very minute.

    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
