My FSIR Spin 5

I built this in 2018 and it's been great ever since. I even took it touring, traveling the length of South Korea. Zero problems throughout. All in all a fantastic light and affordable bike.

Do you have pictures of your bike folded and the folded size ?

I've always thought this was a cool design, too bad they are no longer made (that I know of).

What do you clip into that Klickfix luggage truss? I have the same one on my Downtube 8H but have had trouble finding bags/baskets that fit it and don't interfere with the front wheel.

I usually mount the Tern Go-to bag (very well made and fits a 14" laptop) or Kangga Rack with a dry bag. Take a look at the Tern website. I used to own an Ortlieb bag too but sold it. The Ortlieb bag is shown here mounted on the seatpost but could be mounted on the Tern Luggage Truss too.

Tern Kangga Rack on the highest of its two rungs, meaning its lowest vertical setting.
