So... how fast is the cruising speed of that puppy?

On a good road at a comfortable cruising cadence it gets along at, what feels like, 10 MPH.

If you ever come to Bangkok and want to see other parts of Thailand in miniature, you go here.

They have free bicycles to ride, but I brought my folders instead.

A week ago we rode the Golden Gate loop with the Brompton and the green Nova. It's a very popular tour with tourists. You rent a bike at San Francisco near the ferry pier, ride 10 miles via the golden gate bridge to Sausalito and then return with a ferry.

If you look closely, you can see the gopro on the front bag mount.

They use it to scan bike trails. For example, one of our favorite trails, near Monterey here http://goo.gl/maps/DFFfh . It looks heavy, not much fun on hills like this one http://goo.gl/maps/ieCBE ;-)

Hehe, I'm flattered, thank you so much - but as a project it's more of a 'mod' than a restoration. Any idiot can bolt on the new parts in a couple of hours, I'm proof of that... :)

Quite a few of the ideas were not mine, and I tried to reflect some of the creativity Raleigh and Moulton owners have shown with their machines. The B. is a far quicker and cheaper project with many standard parts, and it would be fun to see more examples of what others can do with them.



Original versions have bags more charm than the modded ones though. I bookmarked this gentleman's Bickerton as an outstanding (restored?) example: http://pachypo.exblog.jp/tags/Bickerton%20Portable/


I love looking at all the bikes and photography here too.

See if you can find my Dahon Boardwalk in this panorama photo from atop the Specialized Bikes van at the Amgen Tour of California... rode down to Santa Rosa from Sebastopol and back for the finish

New Brompton most of the way home on my one way commute.

We do this ride once or twice a year. Drive to the railway station. Ride following the old road close to the lake. Then under the new road to eat at the diner on the other side. This time the rebuild of the new road had a suprise for us, old road under new road closed: http://www.flickr.com/photos/77836183@N08/8899472794/

Decided the brave and fit ones (son and friend) should climb up and cross the road, in search for buns at least from the petrol station: http://www.flickr.com/photos/77836183@N08/8899472998/ Here they are almost at the top.

Dog, white folder and me waiting (and worrying if it was a good solution to cross that road):

Waiting for the hunters to bring back food

Resting

They brought back buns from the hunt.

Almost back by the car we met a friend (who recognised us on the folders + dog) that said there was a new entrance to the diner 3-400 mtrs down the road from the old one... May be a good thing, the old one was super steep, only suited for mountain goats.
Learned something that day too I guess :).

Not so sure if I'd have been inclined to stop just where you did, I'd have kept pedalling!
