Very nice looking bike! Congrats! The only Terns I have seen are black. I like the white and orange a lot.

Very nice.

I don't know why more folding bikes don't have large gear ranges like this one. And if you have hills, it looks like you could put on a double and really get the very low gears too.

Awesome!

I was torn between the X10 and a Brompton. If the Tern folded up as small as the Brommie I would have gotten that. If (when) I get another folder it will more than likely be the X10. It's a super nice bike.

Yes indeed, she's a beauty. I have to be partial here as I own one too. Replaced the saddle with a Fizik Antares Versus and added mini bar-ends to improve on the ride. Oh yes, replaced the cassette to 11-25T for a tighter gear range. Before all these mods, it's still a very sweet bike.

I was out on the Mezzo yesterday evening and a child said "that bike is sick" as I rode passed. I didn't know if I should take it as a compliment or not, I'm just obviously not down with it any more.
