    Post your MiniVelo or folder thread!!!

    The title says it all. Please try to keep it MiniVelo only, but I'd luv to see a folder if you own it. Here's my current version of my Lombardo Power2000, and I'll be swapping out the front ring for a 52T chainring soon. The rear wheel is a 7 speed, and I'm using a Xootr Swift wheelset.

    I also actually consider the Xootr Swift a MiniVelo that has limited folding ability,...I'll probably post a pick of it at a later time.

    SCREW IT! MINIVELO OR FOLDERS ARE 100% WELCOME!!!

    This isn't a very good pic, but I hadn't taken a 'full body' photo of my Mercier Nano since I fitted the 60T chainring last fall, so I figured I'd grab one at this opportunity.

    The 60T mated to the 11T cog gives me 100.5 gear inches, so I can keep her spooled up pretty good; often, 700c riders are initially amused, but then go through phases of surprise, frustration, resignation, and I imagine, although I'm not around to see it, incredulity, when they encounter me on the road. I once got into a friendly sprint during a casual group ride with a carbon Trek rider which went past the 30mph mark, much to his surprise!

    what the hell, any excuse to show off.

    here is my Origin8 Bully which I put a lot of work into, only thing original is the frame and fork. The Highlights: 56t chainring, 11-32t 10 speed cassette, 20" X 1.95" hookworms (19.61 OD close to 1-1/8 451), 34.32 to 99.83 gear inch range, BB7 disc brakes with 160mm rotors, Shimano Zee shifter/derailleur, thomson elite stem, crankbros seatpost, sram rival 130mm bcd crankset, Shimano saint pedals, narrow 425mm straight bars.

    I LOVE this bike, its small, fast, and handles better than any bike I have ever ridden at high speed and low and the long 1028mm wheel base makes it very stable. The large high pressure tires give tremendous grip with very low rolling resistance and the small diameter makes a tire like this manageable and nimble it is not what you would expect.





    though it is technically a folder my first mini velo was my dahon silvertip. A great little bike, I upgraded the brakes, put on narrow bars, put in a cane creek headset, and changed it to a 1x drivetrain.

    what sets a mini velo apart from many other 20" foldies such as my dahon vector p8?




    ...oops, nevermind, I kind of get it now. I like them. Looks like a lot of fun.

    The powder on Forrest is a dual stage copper / brown and was done up before the Moulton arrived... if it had been my choice the Moulton would have been British racing green and might go that way over the winter.

    BRG would be really nice.

    Now you got me thinking about my first car a racing green 69' MGC GT, loved that car, it had the nicest feeling 4 speed, though I spent more time under it than in the driver seat. Geez you are on a roll get me thinking about old cars

    The Origin8 Bully is something I've wanted for a long time. It's fast, strong, reliable, and something I can't seem to locate here in NYC.

    And as for posting a pic of your folder - FEEL FREE! All I ask is that you own the bike you post pics of. I'm loving the bikes posted so far,... But I WANTS AN ORIGIN8 BULLY!!!

    Just saw these Dahon Bullhead folding minis, both are on ebay and heavily customized

    dahon1.jpgdahon2.jpg

    The 2nd is the large size frame and looks like a clown bike, if clowns used aero bars!

    If you don't own it please don't post it,... If you're selling it yourself I have no problem tho.

    Technically, a bike with 20" wheels that does not fold.

    They're not circus bikes but serious transportation.

    That does not make any sense to me, and is almost backwards, because discussion forums are not to be used for sales, but rather sales postings should go in sales forums. In any case, these pics and the comment "I found on eBay" should not warrant any comments about propriety in my mind.

    When did you start being the rule moderator on this forum, because I think I missed that little piece of information?

    If he/she has the privilege of being able to post classifieds ads in the forums I'd personally have no problem with it. This is what I'm referring to. I want to see all the goodies everyone owns. I might even buy!

    I asked politely, and I can do so if I see fit. Or did you just create a rule against it. I'm a former moderator from an portable audio site, and asking someone respectfully isn't considered taboo on the interwebs.

    Now, where's your bike? I'm dieing for some more pics!

    I don't understand. It wasn't a sales posting, so why did you say anything? Anyway, I think your request or comment or whatever you call it, was out of place.

    Won't bother with the Hooli's since they're both stock and pics are everywhere on the web.

    No, it wasn't out of place. Let me reiterate. I asked for forum members to post pics of bikes they own, not a bike listed somewhere else on the 'net. I then said if the person DOES own it, and they're selling it and post it in the thread, I'd like to see it.

    What's so hard to understand? Was I rude? Please, let me know - because I know I wasn't. :/

    I definitely like the Schwinn, and I'd still luv to see the the Hooligan!

    Oh, now I get what you're saying! Apologies; I thought you were complaining that it was an eBay listing, but now I get that, within the context of "Post your MiniVelo", if it ain't yours, don't post it! Sorry, but sometimes I'm just not that quick!
