Fast, lightweight, affordable folders... know what I'm giving thanks for this year...

Hello everyone, pleasure to be sharing and reading your posts here. It's nice to hear all about your rides, and have a space to exchange ideas and stories, keep em' coming! Here's a great piece written by a blogger who came into our nyc shop and test rode the Dahon Vector p8 folder. Give it a read at the link: "Dahon Vector P8: The Sporty Commuter Bike."

All the best,

Jack

And what are your personal experiences and stories? So far your three posts spanning almost two years appear to be mere business lures.

Is this the same guy that does the videos ?

I do quite enjoy those but agree business must be slow to stoop to posting adverts as posts.

Ps ah no that is Peter that does the videos. As I said I enjoyed watching those

I've ordered a few things from NYCeWheels in the past since my LBS that handles Bromptons and related accessories is horrible to deal with. Their online ordering service is great, no complaints whatsoever but these few posts by Jack and Peter seem ingenuine and more of a ploy to drum up business or attention for their employer instead of actually constructively participating on this forum of enthusiasts. Jack, Peter, can you guys at least make an effort to contribute something useful here to validate your choice to be members on the Folding Bike Forum? You've just lost business from this BF member... I wonder if your "efforts" will compensate for that.

i think they rely more on their fake "reviews" posted on youtube.

Lets have a wide community here? I would welcome input from NYCe wheels. If NYCe want to promote, review or straight up advertise folders, then to be honest I'd be interested. I like folders! Just declare your interest, and as mentioned above - you must have interesting contributions to make as well.
I know that Thor has run into similar, and I thought unwarranted, comments recently.
I don't have a bike business!

Thor very actively contributes here. There is a very large difference in activity been these two forum accounts.

100% agreed. I wouldn't suggest otherwise. I'd welcome NYCe becoming involved in an open manner is all.

Completely agree. I've heard about a lot of good interactions with then and think they could be a valuable addition here. Hopefully they'll do that.

Hi Bruce, thanks for the quote. The author is a new guest blogger for our bike shop named Tracy Dong, who is a passionate Brompton rider, as well as a prolific writer about travel and food: http://traveledeats.wordpress.com/20...w-connections/. Will continue to share blogs here at the forum if there is interest, although I'll try to pick one's that are especially informative, and light on the infomercial-ness.

All the best,

Jack
