I just got my PocketRocket Pro the day before Xmas 2005. It only took a couple of minutes to get it set up although it took longer to do the initial dial-in of my setings. Since I have 6 other bikes and do century rides and ironman distant triathlons, I pretty much have my bike position nailed. Once I duplicated it, I went for a 0 mile bike ride. It felt great (although I was not in biking shape since I have been training almost exclusively for the Disney 1/2 and full marathons). I kept up with my bike partner and even punished him up a few hills. I went out for a final tune-up before sending the tempoary stem back in while it was blowing around 20 MPH with gusts up to 30 MPH. Felt safer on my PRP then on my Trek 5200. So, I am looking forward to lots of enjoyable miles. I will be brining it out to the Seattle to Portland bike ride this July. Hope to see you there! roger clemmons

I have your nice Pocket Rocket Pro and I love it a lot. I had raced in the Astroman Triathlon in Sado island in Japan early September. My Bike Friday was very nice and very comfortable to ride. The 65 miles' bike leg was very tough and had some hard up-hills. I selected two special wheels made by Amanda sports in Tokyo. They were awesome. I enjoyed the race and I'm always very excited to ride my wonderful Bike Friday. Thank you for making a nice bike - Jin Iizuka, Japan
As far as the ride is concerned, it is superb. Yes, it is a harsher ride than say my full size carbon frame bike, but it seemingly excels at accelerating from full stop, at cornering, and allowing one to draft very efficiently. No problems keeping up and/or dropping racing colleagues. As far as quick folding for commuting purposes, it is a nightmare. More likely than not, derailleur needs to be adjusted after each unfold. Need to be part-time mechanic (and have a lot of spare time) to own bike for this purpose. The ride quality is great enough to put up with a not particularly compact or graceful fold. But the constant need for adjusting after unfolding may also drive you nuts. There is a possibility it is just something amiss with my particular PRP. But as for the famous customer service, I'm still waiting respectively one and two weeks on my prior two emails requesting assistance. Had been very responsive on the sale though.
