Hey Folks -- Earlier this year, I got a Bike Friday Crusoe -- not strictly a folder, if you need a bike that folds fast for commuting duty, you might want something else, like the Tikit -- but that's not what I bought it for. I wanted a good bike that fits and rides like my normal road bikes, but which can be packed compactly and easily for traveling. I recently got to try it out for a trip to Hawaii. Packed it into the Samsonite suitcase and just checked it with the luggage. No extra fees. Got to Hawaii and it only took a few minutes to get the bike reassembled and ready to ride. Had a great time riding in Hawaii.
Here's a ride report from my blog, The Retrogrouch: The Retrogrouch: Riding in Hawaii
