I own two Fridays (a New World Tourist and an Air Glide). The Air Glide is more fun to ride with its suspension mast acting as a shock absorber, but the NWT comes apart more easily for longer and is more stable on the road.
I commute to my office most days (only icy winter roads make me drive), so get between 12 to 20 miles of riding in each day, depending on which route I take.
Weekends offer the chance for longer recreational rides. I enjoy the Fridays because they ride smoothly, are easy to mount and dismount, and even with panniers, are relatively light.
I ride a disc braked suspension mountain bike on days where I expect to ride on gravel. My lightest bike is a carbon frame Trek 5200 and it is used when I expect to have to lift onto and off of a carrier.
I have not yet taken rides longer than four hours on the Air Glide or the NWT, but suspect they would do fine, despite the smaller wheels.

On Sunday 9 Aug I head off home after three months in the US, mostly around Peteluma in CA. The highlights of my long holiday have been touring on my brand new BF Air Glide, resplendent in its Enno Orange Livery. After picking up my bike from Eugene in early June I pedalled my way to Corvallis, then to Newport via the scenic (read quiet) route and from there I town surfed my way to Northern California. I have been touring for the best part of 20 years and I have to say that touring on the Air Glide was a dream. It is a beautiful bike to ride, and it fitted me perfectly thanks to Dave Seybert's expert advice. The trailer followed me faithfully for most of the distance and there were literally no troubles with the bike. The trailer gave me some woes but BF leapt to the task of fixing the problems for me. I have also toured the Napa Valley and many roads around the Petaluma/Santa Rosa area. All up I have done nearly 1000miles. The bike now rests snugly in it's carry case ready for the journey home.

I am very happy with Bike Friday customer service. I have talked with Tim & Ian who have been very helpful and prompt: all my questions have been answered and technical issues dealt with. Walter - this is the best bike I have ever ridden! Susan & I really like these machines - they purr down the fire roads! The AirGlide suspension is awesome. I am very happy with the parts you spec'd out for the bikes!
