I was able to capture a photo of this elusive creature; it was seen swiftly, nimbly over taking a herd of Brommies. Quite beautiful, even in its stock configuration.

Some lovely folding bikes in this thread. I'm going to have to give mine a paint touch up and drop of oil to compete.

That would spoil the looks. You should ride it as is.

$20+Craigslist+need a cheap folder right NOW=Adventurer 6 speed.

The only thing really wrong with this bike is that the seat won't go high enough for me. That, and I don't entirely trust the handlebars & stem. And the seat is too soft.

But I rode 22 miles (35km) on it a few days ago.

Bargain for $20 for sure. It's your generic entry level steel folding bike but at least it has height adjustable handlebars and a Shimano freewheel, derailleur and shifter and not generic parts. The company that sells it doesn't seem to know what thumbshifters are though. The great thing about such a bike is you can enjoy it and use it without worrying so much about theft because of its lack of value and being less desirable. Looks likely to be a fuji-ta bike its one of their classic frame designs and they are the world's biggest manufacturer of bikes and frames.

..also on my Spin in 49-406. They were a lucky shot, there was no alternative available in weight, volume, price. The other good things about came unexpected.

Nice bike. Seat is awful. Way too squishy.

Unfortunately I didn't think to take any proper pics of the folder while I was out today, so this one's ripped from Snapchat.


I've had the Tokyo for about two and a half years now and am still pleased with it. Put a front rack on it, swapped the Kendas for Schwalbe Marathons, and swapped the saddle for a Brooks B17.
