Patrick O’Grady spent some time reviewing our 2011 New World Tourist with the Select Group, and his conclusions appear in the June issue of Adventure Cyclist magazine, the official publication of the Adventure Cycling Association — a great resource for touring.
Just thought we’d share a couple of excerpts:
“Abandon your preconceived notions and ride the damn bike. Like any other two-wheeler, riding a New World Tourist is way more fun than many other things you can do with your clothes on, and it’s a good deal more versatile than whatever a wanna-be racer is riding.”
“Without racks and bags, the New World Tourist accelerates, corners, and brakes like a cat in a dog park. The straight-gauge, 4130-chromoly, made-in-Oregon frameset provides a comfortable, bump-muffling ride, and once rolling the bike doesn’t feel as though it weighs nearly 29 pounds (that’s with pedals, racks, and kickstand).”
Few review a bike the way Patrick O’Grady does.

When Peg Champion of GreenTown Los Altos went looking for comment for her blog, she got this from a Bike Friday owner:
Jim Thurber, fourth-grade teacher at Gardner Bullis Elementary, who commutes daily on his Bike Friday, told her, “I’m a cheapskate. I hate to buy gasoline. I’d also like to put my cardiologist out of business.”

By Yang Cheng-Hsieh
Sometimes I like the freedom of solo travel. I don’t need to wait for
others. I can take a rest break whenever I want and ride at my own
speed. On the last day before winter vacation ended, suddenly the
weather turned good. I seized the opportunity to tour solo on my BIKE
FRIDAY to see the beautiful spring Sakura (cherry blossoms) and enjoy
the feeling of wandering.
I really like my diamond frame Bike Friday, which I got from the U.S.
I got a TravelCase and Trailer for it in Taiwan.
I traveled through the Ruifang disctrict of New Taipei City, northeast
of Taipei, to Pingxi – famous for the Lantern Festival, Shuangxi,
Chinkuashih ? location of the Gold Ecological Park, and the Jiufen
mountains. My trip was very leisurely, over Shiping road, a beautiful
road through the mountains with views of maple leaves in autumn and
cherry blossoms in spring.
