Pacific IF Reach review from theactivetimes.com
 
Interesting review but I feel they've really underestimated the bike. I really feel the suspension working on rougher trails like the Grand Union towpaths. They have underestimated the effective fold somewhat. The observations on the pricing point are in line with my opinion.

I’ll say it now: Folding bikes are not cool. And they’re not meant to be
I wonder how many the writer has looked at in detail to validate such an opinion. I've seen many people be amazed at the effectiveness of all of my folding bikes.

The Alfine 11 hub is a beauty. IMHO the best IGH for the money in the world!

Well, at least they rated it higher than the Montague. The Reach looks so damn pretty though; I really do think that will be my next bike. :rolleyes:

Interesting, and fair points.
There is another review in Velovision.

As for folding bikes not being cool ........... (I rest my case, M'lord) :)

It's a great bike. I notice it is much cheaper in the US and more realistically priced at $1500 by NYCE Wheels. I even use the Pacific on trails and I have to disagree with the review that the suspension doesn't make any difference.

Once they said that, it shows the objectivity of the reviewer has flown out the window!

Maybe the IF fold was the result of an aborted engineering from another project from the Sanders portfolio ? :geek:
