Over the last two years I've been using my Pocket Rocket for Bay Area Century rides. It has turned out to be an outstanding Century rider. It's also rare as the San Francisco region tends to attract the latest (most expensive) carbon fiber wonder bikes. My Purple Pocket Rocket has been the only folder on the Tour de Menlo, Sequoia Century, Tour de Cure and other rides about the beautiful coast range near San Francisco. I have one other bike — a SOMA (56 cm) equipped with very low gears and good for some of our 15 percent (plus) hills, but the Pocket Rocket continues to give the best combination of great comfort, excellent ride characteristics and the incredible ability to fold up and fit nearly anywhere. I've upgraded the Rocket a bit — changing the Tiagra triple crank to a compact, upgrading the brakes (the stock Tiagra were pretty good, not much difference) and when touring using an 11 x 32 cassette. However, most of the time I stick with the Capreo gearing (with the compact crank) which is fine up to about 9 percent grades. [Note: The Capreo hub cannot be fitted with a different cassette so Bike Friday supplied me with a new wheel / hub — very inexpensive and well worth it for touring] Perhaps the best part of the Bike Friday experience was the personal fitting. No matter what I ride NOTHING fits me as well as my Purple Pocket Rocket. The relationship between seat / pedals and bar is simply … perfect. Was it worth it? Absolutely. Would I do it again? In a heart beat!
