I've been using an old Giant MTX to commute and shop since I can't afford a car and the public transportation is so...lacking here (the routes keep getting rescheduled to be less and less helpful....if you cant walk 5 miles over hills it isnt really safe to rely on the buses!!!) but it's getting pretty beat up plus Ive been worried since someone in the building had their bike stolen from the parking lot (mine was left, guess it was too old & battered! but they took my lights) so i wanted one I could carry up stairs...but I thought folding bikes were still expensive and not really great for anything but short rides on very flat terrain (and looked really weird not that that shld really matter!)
Then I was bored & reading random news articles the other day & there was a silly little slideshow on small space living that was mostly puff pieces about expensive decor & almost didnt click thru to the end....fortunately i did 'cuz the very last item was this:
Wow! affordable & cute folding bikes??? where do I learn more??? so i started googling reviews & ended up here, and the fact that the owner of Origami is an active participant helped me make up my mind, to try out the Crane...when it gets here i'm sure the cats will help me figure out how to set it up!
