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!
