I am officially a proud owner of a folding bike. Thanks to my vandalized bike experience, I no longer have a bike for commuting & I am now paranoid about locking my bike anywhere. It must be within my sight at all times. I needed to bring my bike on the train, take it to my office, & store it under my desk in my cubicle……only a Folding bike can satisfy these criteria. I have never been a fan of Foldies….I cannot accept its awkward appearance & upright position. I much prefer performance bikes & sitting in an aerodynamic-bent over position. I will definitely need time to adjust.
After researching for a week, I finally settled for a Dahon Speed D7.
I went to Urbane Cyclist after work today to test-ride PLUS purchase it! Oh goodness, what have I gotten myself into HAHA. 😀 This baby went home with me on the train today.
I realized after I returned home that I was missing my bike manual & rear Tire valve cap. I will have to go back to Urbane tomorrow. My transportation of choice tomorrow is…….you guessed it, this Foldie!
