I've got the touring bug and folding bike bug real bad, have always wanted to try folded touring, and this may be my chance to get a bike that'll handle it.
I need to replace my aging Dahon Curve folding bike - it's spending far too much time out of commission to be reliable, and it's 3-speed drivetrain isn't cutting it ever since my work moved near the Watchung Mountains. (My knees aren't all that happy, either.)
A Bike Friday Tikit with a decent deraileur drivetrain (I work near the Watching Mountains) fits the bill for a commuter folder (this thread in the Folding Bikes forum convinced me to test-ride one), but will it let me do light touring as well?
The touring setup would probably be two large panniers on the front rack, handlebar bag, and either a trunk bag or a roll of stuff on the rear rack. Has anyone here toured on a BF Tikit?
