My longest one-day ride on my single-speed Dahon Mu Uno: South Bend, IN to Chicago, IL. I started at 4:50 a.m. and took full advantage of southeasterly winds to make the 105 mile ride in time to take a swim in Lake Michigan, get something to eat, and catch a 1:35 p.m. train back to South Bend. (It was the South Shore train -- a train on which full-sized bikes are not allowed.)

When mating season arrives the Birdy will proudly display it's much brighter mating plumage and often show a disregard for it's own safety as it seeks to find a suitable mate.

If that does happen, I wouldn't want to be in the saddle when it does.

At the SF Bike Expo. The valets said they had seen someone with a Cannondale mini velo (!?) earlier, but mine was the only one I saw -- I didn't even see any folders in the show, though I passed someone on a Brompton heading up the hill & assume they were headed for the Cow Palace...

Yep, as Dynaryder mentioned above, it was likely the Cannondale Hooligan. A great bike!

Here's a picture for you. Very sexy .....and the bike is too.

Birdy Mark 1 Silver/Capreo at Niagara Falls, US side, lots of mist that day


I wonder if those Big Apples would provide enough flotation to...nah!


The first time I saw the falls, I don't remember seeing any of those Canadian sticky uppy things from here. Progress, I guess.


Birdy paying homage to Nikola Tesla at "The Statue of NO Limitations". Nikola may have been working on a bicycle design when he died. Not a folder, or a separable, but an expandable! By rearranging the spacing of electrons in their shells, he could vary the size of the tires and frame geometry to transition from a nimble urban commuter to a high flotation snow bike, while shrinking into an Altoids tin for compact rail/bus transportation and storage (not that you'd have to take a train unless the weather was really nasty, because his lithium-plasma battery powered motor (AC naturally, with an inverter) would propel the bike at up to 46.2 MPH for 9.6 hours, uphill, with a 300 pound rider on board (Nikola even foresaw that trend) . Scoff if you want, but just remember who we're talking about here. The plans were missing from his papers after he died, like a lot of other things, probably pilfered by Thomas Edison and the Bicycle Manufacturers Cartel.

Nice Birdy!

I wish mine is silver. I have the green version.

Is it "wild" if I'm on my way to the office?

Actually, I'm one of the pilots, and the seat on the left is mine.

This sheds some light on certain aspects that a black-box can't record.
