    Clean bill of health.

    Some of you suggested that I take my new Adventure folding bikes that I got from Camping World to a mechanic and have them checked out. I did so, and I have them back. The bikes needed some adjustments, and they ride great now. I had asked the mechanic when I brought the bikes to him if they are worth keeping. After his assessment/adjustments and test rides, he said they ride like a dream, and that for inexpensive bikes they are fairly decent quality. So I guess its thumbs up to Camping World for selling a couple of nice inexpensive keepers. One other comment. He did work on an older model Dahon, and between the two he preferred mine, whatever that's worth. But all in all, I'm relieved to know that I got my moneys worth.

    So I'm off for a ride

    Glad to hear that the Adventure bikes are tuned up now. When it comes to an object like a bike, "worth" is a totally objective and personal word thing to consider. Ultimately, if these bike serve the purposes you intended for them, and you purchased them within your budget and you're enjoying them, then they're worth it. All that's left to do is enjoy!

    Good deal! I'm happy for you! I imagined that for the money, you would be getting a nice bike.

    Now enjoy, and keep us posted.
