Back to folding bike.
I have just bought a folding bike, not my first, but, my first after an absence of 6 years. I previously owned a Birdy Red (ten years ago) a Brompton (five years ago) and a Bike Friday which I owned and loved for 7 years. I loved my Bike Friday and travelled all over Europe with it, My wife still has hers (NWT) I sold mine, foolishly, for a big wheel touring bike, my thinking at the time was that as my 3 mile commute to work involved no other transport there was no need for a folder. I forgot about the other advantages. Now retired and living in France I recently became aware that my regular cycling was restricted by the advantage of putting my folder in the back of the car and driving to different places. So, I am back and the proud owner of a Dahon Vitesse D8. I will update this post with my opinions on my new bike, and comparisons with other folders owned, hope you find this of some interest, regards, Gary.
