    Received that BF e-mail, too. Interesting solution, but will stick with our current Fridays. Chains fall off occassionally when folding/un-folding, but not that big of a deal.

    Why not go on a ride with your parents, and you can stop for lunch along the way, rather than cooking yourself?

    We ride with our daughter and grandson (age 17) when ever possible (and son-in-law,...

    Being 'old folks with folders' ourselves (early 70's), let me offer some tips:

    Actually, a rack is good, especially to carry the previously suggested picnic basket, or something they bought along...

    Hard to tell from that angle, but it looks like a full-sized Raleigh 20. Just not the orig seat, though. Looks like good shape, easily worth $100. Wife was given one a couple of yrs ago by our next...

    Noticed that the 'poster' has taken down that Craigslist ad.

    Also, you'd think that a bike shop in Oakland would have significant security in place (like atleast 2 or 3 Freds).

    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.

    You mean Camping World isn't going to have a competitor for their 22" wheeled folder?

    This one has been pretty well hashed-out, but I will make a couple of general comments as a retired salesman (sold business telephone systems, both large and small for 18 yrs).

    Jur,

    The result of middle-aged pedal power??? Hope it can be fixed; I know you like that bike a lot.

    I have one Aluminum frame, but it's only a year old. I doubt it will be cracked by the time...

    A couple of points:

    1) Those of us that are taller (or shorter) than average find that Bike Fridays are a folder that fits very nicely. They are also easy to modify with Std parts, but that's...

    Here's my full time neighborhood-bike/cruiser - It's an SS29'er.

    Those are 2.0" Big Apples on it (may go to 2.35s" later), and that's the 21" frame because I'm 6'3". I'm sure it baffles some of...

    Having owned three Dahons and now four Bike Fridays, I can say that Bike Fridays definitely have more "stock" parts than Dahons. In addition, if I need any BF exclusive parts (and I have needed a...

    FYI to OP - I get my 406 tires and tubes from a store in Portland, OR that specializes in recumbents. (They also sell Dahons and carried Bike Fridays, too, at one point.)

    I'd just stay with the Presta valves. They work very well, and are readily available in the 20" (406) size. We have five folders - three with Prestas, one with Schrader converted to Presta and one...

    Yup, sounds like the incorrect info in the original VC Star story got everyone's attention. Interesting they corrected it - makes more sense now.

    That was my point. Brakeless SS is far worse - no way to lock-up the rear wheel, except by sacrificing you foot & ankle and the wheel, too.

    Interestingly enough, most casual riders are on cruisers...

    Isn't the problem really not having brakes??? Portland, OR requires at least a front brake on fixies.

    My Gravity 29er SS would be IMPOSSIBLE to stop without brakes - except via a crash.

    A very, very long time.

    Wife and I had matching bikes before we were married in the mid-60's, and still ride now. Daughter grew up on the back of our...

    Interesting. A neighbor has a Mazda 3 - need to check just how much room there is behind that back seat. Not going to sell our 2007 Yaris anytime soon, though. Got 41.3 MPG on the 165 mile drive out...

    Our Fridays with the Kenda 1.75" tires are far better on rough city streets than our Fridays with the 1.35" Kojacks.

    Tested this during Portland's 2013 "Pedalpalooza" rides.

    1) No. 'Pocket' Fridays are not designed for that - only the tikit is.

    2) Stem can be converted to 'folding', seat post cannot. FYI, folding stem widens the folded pkg a bit.
