A focus on Bike Friday

sales team
Reposted from Bike Friday’s site. Overview sums it up when you buy a Bike Friday – Build to Order, handcrafted in Oregon USA. Nice!

We want you to think of us as your private bicycle factory. Bike Friday will build a bicycle as unique as you. We build it to fit your body. We build it to fit your specific cycling needs. And we build it for performance: So you can enjoy your adventures.

The best way for you to discover which Bike Friday will satisfy your needs is to talk to a Bike Consultant or visit a Bike Friday Dealer. But we know you might be hesitant. You want to do some research on your own. Get to know us better.

So our process begins by attempting to find what category represents your needs.

Touring? Road? Commuter? It can sound confusing. We start with the basics to guide you through the process.

Give us the answers to this basic question (click on link to see the multiple choice answers) and we can help determine what your riding type might be:

What do you see yourself doing on your Bike Friday most frequently?

So, that’s where it starts.

Every cycling adventure begins with a pedal stroke, whether you’re riding around the block or around the world. But every journey begins with a plan. At Bike Friday, our plan is simple. We listen to you, guide you through our process, then meet your needs.

It doesn’t matter if you are a seasoned cyclist, a beginner, or someone in-between. You have goals and expectations. We want to satisfy them.

We’ve made a couple of simple commitments we stand by. First, your Bike Friday will be built by hand in the USA, Eugene, Oregon, to be exact. Second, when you contact us, a real live person will respond as soon as humanly possible.

No matter what your dreams might be, we can help find a bike to help you make those dreams come true.

Bike Friday’s founders are cyclists. Hanz  and Alan Scholz don’t just ride bikes. They race bikes. They push bikes to the limit. And, they build bikes. Performance bikes.tikit-boat

Their goal isn’t to design the best bike in the world. It’s to design the right bike for your world. So whatever cycling you plan to do, you can feel confident you’ll have a bicycle that can deliver a comfortable and reliable ride.

Our journey together begins with a question: What do you see yourself doing on your Bike Friday most frequently?

Don’t worry if you’re not quite sure what your answer is. That’s why we’re here. To guide the journey. We want to know what kind of riding you plan to do so we can match you with the right type of bike. That’s step one.

So take a moment and look through the various styles of riding in our Buyer’s Guide where we ask you that simple question above, and see if you can find yourself in any of our descriptions.

Our concept is based on the Bike Friday Travel System, to make it easy for you to always have your best bike with you.

You can also start by comparing the basics of our models.

 Your Bike Friday will be hand built from scratch at our Factory in Eugene, Oregon.

Bike Friday – 100% USA assembled foldable bike and has a very unique range too

My Bike Shop started managing Bike Friday in June 2010 and since then we have sold more than a dozen of these USA assembled bikes.  While many will agree that the 16 inch Tikit wins hands down for fast folding (Hyperfold) and the ideal bike for commuting/travel companion ( It is designed to fit a samsonite bag, with handle grips and canvas straps for easy handling), the ride is very good for 16 inch wheeled foldie. There are still the uninformed who believe that foldies are not serious cyclists, many have experienced the performance and fun one can have with a foldable ( at least we can still get on the train/buses on restricted hours and keep our bikes in the home and the car when it rains LoL).  Oh well you cannot win them all.:)

Watched an episode of America’s got Talent and it showed a young guy who has epilepsy fly his 4 wire kite with so much grace and timing to Sarah Mclachlan’s hit  – Angel. Do not have the Youtube of the guy in that episode of America’s Got Talent but has Sarah Mclachlan’s beautiful song.

  America despite their ups and downs always gives everyone a chance to fulfill their dreams.

We thought we  share with you Bike Friday’s extended foldable bike range for families with special needs  http://bikefriday.com/specialneeds.  

We have brought in one Family Tandem just incase you want to try it out. It’s the perfect bicycle to bring physically( hearing, visual)  impaired,  persons with autism, those who have a fear of cycling or who cannot cycle, Maybe consider a fodlable Tandem and help them to experience what cycling is about.  Happy Boxing Day!

We love Fridays! and other days (& folding bikes) too!

LATEST! Bike Fridays arriving at our showroom 25 June 2010! Call before you come by!

Bike Friday who are known for their Tikits actually have a wide range of custom fitted bikes for people of all sizes. MBS is very pleased to be asked to handle this range of foldable bikes that are probably the only foldable bike brand left that is 100% handbuilt and configured in the USA! When a rep from Bike Friday came by our shop last year incognito and started asking us about how we serviced our customers, they did not reveal who they where but I guess we made an impression!

Looks like the marketing exposure done for this brand and their range of Pocket Rons and Foldable tandems warrants a better coverage so here’s deal – MBS will be making available:

Pocket Companion,  Pocket Sport, Pocket Expedition AND Family Tandem (Heck even the 2010 Tikit since there are upgrades to the old versions sold here) in a couple of weeks.

We are very sure the bikes are going to be a BIG hit with our local folding bike community.  So if you want a Bike Friday and a 100% US made bike, come by our spacious 2000 sq ft retail space and talk to us or email us at enq@mybikeshop.com.sg so we can notify you when the new bikes come in.  And for the 15 or so Tikit owners in Singapore sold over the last 2 years,  not to worry,  MBS will help manage any warranty concerns within Bike Friday’s scope of warranty.  But we do need your original invoice and warranty cards.

We will be Bike Friday’s Service centre for Singapore and Malaysia.

Bike Friday is well known for their Tandems. Videos for your pleasure viewing: Folding Bike Friday Tandems into a suitcase! If you can fit a Tandem into a suitcase, am very sure you can fit any Bike Friday into a suitcase too!
