Hi... i am newbie

Hi My name is Joaozinho !
It is a pleasure to meet them . I am Brazilian and cycle foldable bicycle from Little (1985 ) . I was born in 1981 and I love folding bikes .

I decided to register myself in this forum, to learn and share experiences ( data, information , knowledge and practical experience ) .

In Brazil it is very rare bikers folding bikes , much rarer folding bikers to share their experiences , stories and photos online.

In humility , I come here to learn and make new friends online . Who knows we ride together one day ! And coming to Brazil , I'm open arms .

Of course , I am also struggling to learn and practice English language correctly through books , videos , course FISK and Google Translator .

I will be happy to add them on Google+ and follow your blog ( s )

And very few import shops folding bikes (example):


Freecycle

Brompton ***
Strida ***
Durban ***
Soul ***

=============================================


Today Brazil is the third largest producer of bicycles
