I got my bike and I love it! I got it Friday and put it together, but just got to test it yesterday. I went to New Jersey and rode along their shore for about two hours. I NEVER rode that long before because after a half-hour my neck would be hurting. I was so comfortable and loved being able to be in a more upright position.
It's really an incredible bike and I'll be honest, before I got it I was thinking it might look a bit funny because it's smaller. As soon as I put it together I realized how cool it looked. I don't think most people can realize how sturdy it is until you ride one, I am so impressed!
When I was finished riding and about to put the bike in my car an older couple were walking by and the wife said "Wow, what a cool bike!" She loved the name Bike Friday too. I told them all about it and what it could do and had her take a test ride. The husband said he couldn't believe it looked so well made for a folding bike. I gave them the pamphlet but I forgot to give them a referral card.
Today I will practice folding it. It took me an hour to put it together and packing it seems a bit overwhelming right now but I'm sure with practice, it will be easier.

This machine represents the pinnacle of 31 years of cycling for me. It is incredibly well designed and features excellent, predictable road manners consistent with high end road bikes. Steering response is very quick due to the lack of gyroscopic force in the front end. Low wheel mass makes for excellent acceleration and climbing. A delight to ride and own.

The Tour of the Scioto River Valley (OH) is a 2-day, back-to-back centuries ride every Mother's Day. I rode my Sat R Day this year.
How did it do? It surpassed what I had hoped for. Prior to the ride, I would have been happy with maintaining around 15 mph, with occasional spurts to the upper teens. What really happened is that I spent most of my time around 18 mph, frequently cruising at 20, with one memorable mile at 23!
I would like for the seat to recline a bit more, but that's the only "blemish" I could find!
