On a good road at a comfortable cruising cadence it gets along at, what feels like, 10 MPH.

If you ever come to Bangkok and want to see other parts of Thailand in miniature, you go here.

They have free bicycles to ride, but I brought my folders instead.

A week ago we rode the Golden Gate loop with the Brompton and the green Nova. It's a very popular tour with tourists. You rent a bike at San Francisco near the ferry pier, ride 10 miles via the golden gate bridge to Sausalito and then return with a ferry.

If you look closely, you can see the gopro on the front bag mount.

They use it to scan bike trails. For example, one of our favorite trails, near Monterey here http://goo.gl/maps/DFFfh . It looks heavy, not much fun on hills like this one http://goo.gl/maps/ieCBE ;-)

Hehe, I'm flattered, thank you so much - but as a project it's more of a 'mod' than a restoration. Any idiot can bolt on the new parts in a couple of hours, I'm proof of that...

Quite a few of the ideas were not mine, and I tried to reflect some of the creativity Raleigh and Moulton owners have shown with their machines. The B. is a far quicker and cheaper project with many standard parts, and it would be fun to see more examples of what others can do with them.



Original versions have bags more charm than the modded ones though. I bookmarked this gentleman's Bickerton as an outstanding (restored?) example: http://pachypo.exblog.jp/tags/Bickerton%20Portable/


I love looking at all the bikes and photography here too.

See if you can find my Dahon Boardwalk in this panorama photo from atop the Specialized Bikes van at the Amgen Tour of California... rode down to Santa Rosa from Sebastopol and back for the finish

Not so sure if I'd have been inclined to stop just where you did, I'd have kept pedalling!

Oh I'd have stopped there any time. Looks like a lovely run and great company.
We have a 1908 steamboat in my home town too, always a treat to see or board.

I actually meant Marqueemoons stop by the Godmobiles. They just scream 'keep peddlin' son' to me.
