Would not be without it!

I have had my New World Tourist for two years now. I have flown to France and Spain with it and have had no hassles from airlines.

I also find it very useful for getting on to trains in the UK and France where traveling with a bike can be a major hassle. It rides just like my full-sized touring bike.

The 3x7 gearing took a few rides to get used to but now I don't think about it.

I can think of no bad sides of the bike! It's fab.

It's really an incredible bike

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.

It's hard for words to describe it

I find my NWT to be very close to the ideal touring bike. It is very responsive yet stable. Every ride for me is an adventure. If you are thinking about getting one, all I can say is go for it. By the way, I have three other high-end bikes in my stable.
