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!
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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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!
