We will be at the Velo Cult bike shop (in the Hollywood Dist. of Portland) on Sat afternoon to test ride the new Bike Friday Haul-a-day - that's the rainbow one with the three kids on the back.

I'll definitely raise a glass of beer in a birthday salute to Alan and Hanz and their creations. (Velo Cult serves both coffee and beer as well as fix bikes. Got to love it.)

Very nice pics. The BF Tikit is probably in my top 5 of next-to-get list.

Happy Birthday Bike Friday.

That orangey-red bike very nice. Is that the OSATA? I'm very intrigued by that bike. Any reviews on it out there?

I stopped by my local folding bike shop the othere day; BFold here in New York City.
Saw something new from B Friday. Not sure if it was a demo model for shops or something
that will,be available for all. Seems that not only are the stems and seatpost adjustable;
but the frame as well. I think it had 3 or 4 size adjustments. Was in a rush and the store
was busy, so I wasn't able to investigate more. Will stop by again maybe this weekend.
Get more info and maybe take photos.

I think Osata replaced the name of their simplest rear derailleur only , low tier component , batch build .
so no customizations ..

they stand behind their frame workmanship.

the OSATA ( One Size Adjusts To All) is a new bike:



adjustabe maintube:



from 48cm to 60cm



a separable.

according to a blog i was reading, it will be available at a remarkably low price-point.

good you read Japanese google translate, page wide, proved useless ..



Most all other folders are 'we only make one size so cope with it' products..

so another Oregon innovation ..

Rear end looks fixed, so looks like separable, not folding bike ..

yea one main tube , length is size ..
