    Do you ride a Mini Velo when not commuting?

    Wondering how many people who own a Mini Velo use it for short tours, store runs, etc. when not commuting.

    Does a 20" wheeled folder count? If yes, then yes I use my folder to quick runs to the store and around town.

    I am not sure many people in the US, not that this forum is exclusively a US thing, actually have Velo Minis. if I had one I would certainly use it for running to Dunkers or Starbucks

    I don't ride it much,but my Hooligan prolly qualifies. It's fun to mess around on. Has the quick handling of a folder but the rigid frame is more stable. Would prolly ride it more if I didn't live in such a hilly area and it had wider gearing.
