    Thanks... great video.

    I visited Bike Friday in Eugene, Oregon a few weeks ago and was impressed with their small operation. They said that they build
    about 9 bikes per day. I bought mine for airline travel, but like the bike so much I ride it almost everywhere.

    Thanks for posting, LosLigato
    I had not seen that video before, and found it pretty interresting. Unfortunately, an ad had it squooshed into skinny mode, so I couldn`t see some things that I suspect were going on near the sides of the frame, but I`ll go hunt it down on YouTube.

    Cool video. I watched it yesterday morning and then coincidentally, as I was walking to lunch at work yesterday, a blue Bike Friday just like the one being built in the video pulled up to the stairs in front of me! Fate!
