After anticipating its arrival for several weeks, my newly purchased "Pre-Loved" Bike Friday tikit Model-T arrived yesterday evening.
The bike was sent in one smallish box and was very carefully packed. Assembly was quick and easy and took only minutes. I then put my own seat and pedals onto the bike, set the handlebar and seat height, put lights on (I commute at night) and literally rode off.
While technically a pre-owned bike, Bike Friday's attention to the details of refurbishing this bike was so thorough that my bike looks and rides like a new bike.
As the wizards at Bike Friday prepared my tikit for resale, they went all-out: new paint (my choice of color, I selected black), new tires, rims, cogs, cables, housings, and a whole lot more is in excellent condition.
To call it used does not seem appropriate. I have ridden Bike Friday's for many years. In fact,my other bike is a Bike Friday Pocket Companion. I have toured all over the mid-Atlantic area on that bike or its equivalent.
The handling of my tikit is as good as the Pocket Companion - that is to say excellent. It is stable enough to ride no-hands, accelerates and corners in a sporty fashion (small wheels, great geometry) and has gearing just fine for Charlottesville's relatively steep hills.
To top it all off, the tikit is very comfortable as well. In short - this is a fine ride!

Recently purchased a Model T tikit on March 29, 2010. I previously rode a racing bike and was concerned that my new ride wouldn't be as smooth or as easy to climb. My doubts were unfounded in that the Bike Friday Model T performed beautifully on flat and somewhat hilly terrain. The fold is very easy and tightening the "Twiddly" knob is very reassuring that the bike is secure. I am really enjoying my riding experience and being able to fold the bike really comes in handy now that the weather in NYC is getting better and I can ride to work and store it safely, not worrying that it is exposed to the outside elements.
