Haul-A-Day

Is the Bike Friday Haul-A-Day considered a folding bike? it doesn't "fold", it "breaks apart".

Just wondering before I start posting more threads in this subforum.

I would say no, based on precedent. Since the moderator do not allow the minivelo in this forum.

Maybe the utility bike forum? It is a cargo bike after all.

Moultons are on topic here and they are take apart bikes as well. So I'd say "give it a go". The more as Bike Friday basically is a folding bike company with many users here in this subforum. What should go wrong?

There are many bikes/topics that cross subforums.

Folding Bikes
Utility Cycling
Living Car Free
Recreational & Family

Others?

I would post in whatever subforum you think is most related to your topic or question. So, something about small wheels or gearing might be appropriate in the folding subforum. On the other hand, topics relating to hauling cargo or kids might fit better in another subforum.

There's a few minivelo threads here in the folding bikes section. There's no reason why this shouldn't be discussed.

I ordered a frame from Bike Friday and it should get here next week or something. I was just going to post about my build. I didn't know if it was appropriate here (or I guess the utility subforum).

they offer an adjustable length,, I think, but you can ask them yourself on line or the phone..

the extended rear does not fold , but being 20" wheels they don't take up as much space as a Big Dummy..

Yes the Haul-A-Days are adjustable. They have the OSATA feature (One Size Adjusts To All).

They are actually pretty small. If you put them in the smallest setting and turn the front wheel backwards, then they fit in bike racks like regular bikes.



Or they break apart and you can fit them in your car or travel case (more like 30 mins. Not the fast fold of folding bicycles)


(These are not my bikes, but you get the idea)
